I was in Spokane last summer too and stood in the same spot. Love your photo, with the clock tower and the old structure (forget what it's called) in the background.

Unfortunately, the waterfall is overexposed. You have no detail in the whites, though there seems to be detail in the original. If you had a tripod, a slow shutter speed might have taken care of that, or returning later in the day.   Posted: 01/09/2020 16:07:41

This is a very promising image. I do agree that the waterfall in your edited version is overexposed however it is not nearly as overexposed in the original. I am wondering if you could have used the Quick Selection tool in Photoshop, then went to Select, Inverse next, made your adjustments which should effected all other areas and not the waterfall. I think it is well worth trying. This image is well cropped and well colored otherwise.   Posted: 01/10/2020 08:20:49

Good composition, but one might say there are too many centers of interest. Rocks, water rapids, bridge, amusement ride?, road, tower, white object top right. Personal preference. As is, it has a lot of interest. At a minimum the white object could be deleted.   Posted: 01/10/2020 18:10:04

I like your composition....it gives us a good perspective of what Spokane has to offer photographers. I agree the water is a little overexposed but the colors and detail in the rocks and trees gives us plenty to focus on. Nice shot.   Posted: 01/16/2020 17:25:33

I like what you did with the image. I was in Spokane for PSA, and your processing makes the scene look brighter and warmer than it was! Nice job. I agree about the falls being overexposed.   Posted: 01/24/2020 12:33:46

I agree with Walter, that the scene is too busy and the waterfall is overexposed. It's a little bit less overexposed in original, but it's hard to recover that.
