I like it. To me it looks like a waterfall with mist rising off it. But I would not have guessed if it weren't said in the description. I liked the subtle colors here but the two bright white spots on the left bottom corner dominate the frame. The dark "stone" in the center is the visual anchor for this but the white spots seem to be competing for attention. May be underexposing by 1/3 would have been much better. That apart its a true abstract

Thanks Sriharsha Ganjam.
Yes the two white spots are dominating.I worried to under expose as it would ruin the details in the other portion.I have tried to remove it using burn tool in the PS. definitely to my taste that looks more beautiful and they dont compete for attention. But as it violates the rule I posted the original image.

This is a very nice work Adithya. The abstract feel in the image is very appealing. I like the hint of the roots at the top left corner and yes the other version looks slightly better for me and I would increase the brightness of that version wee bit. Overall a fine attempt with an appealing result.

Its looking just great. I like it the way it is. I am not too technically sound to advice you on what to do, so would stick to enjoying the image and appreciate. :)

Very interesting and creative image Adithya. Good that you explicitly stated about dodging using photoshop. The same can be achieved onfield if you use a polariser to cut the hot pixels/reflections off the rocks. Very abstract feel in the image. I like it except for the dodging part. Thanks for sharing.

I like the alternate version better. But yes as Pramod suggested you may try getting hold of a poloriser. But I liked the entire abstract feel none the less :) Good effort

This is a very juicy image, I personally would have added a bright colored dried leaf and the shake has come out well. Full marks for trying this out.
