Taken with a 1.6 second shutter speed, this is the leaves moving in the natural Eddy of this waterfall. I used a ND filter and a GND together since it was daytime and there was some backlighting1.

This is "upper Niskayuna falls" for lack of an official or better name. It's a two tiered falls -- the only major one in Niskayuna (my town) that I know about. Just about 10 feet behind where I am standing (in the water) with the camera, this water goes down a 50+ foot falls. Unfortunately, the bigger falls is really hard to photograph given all the trees, and lack of a good place to stand to see it. So I make due with the upper falls.

Still not believe this image is not a winner.. Maybe, BP chose randomly from the finalists.
