We will live in the Rain shadow area of the Western Ghats and get the rains only in during the Northeast Monsoons in India - Usually in Oct/Nov. But this year ( 2020 ) there was heavy rains during the Southwest monsoons and there enough rain to get across the mountain ranges into the rain shadow area. The mountain stream come alive for a few days during this time. This was one such occasion to witness and enjoy. This  forest area is full of wildlife, only accessible by foot.

A peaceful setting.
Perhaps a step over that big boulder to eliminate it and get the nice cascades up front in the image...

Agree with John, I also would suggest evening out the tonality between foreground and background a bit :)

Thanks for your feedback. We will try to even out the tonality. 
I had composed with the rock in the foreground in mind.  I guess I should have moved in closer and tried a different composition.

I like this just as it is, but also like what you did in P&DA with a similar scene, perhaps closer to what people are suggesting.
