The way to get that lacy effect from a waterfall is to take an exposure slightly longer than the camera's automatic setting might want to. Instead of taking a 1/60 of a second shot, for example, leave the camera shutter open for a full second. But if the scene has too much sunlight, there's a danger of overexposure. It's easier if the waterfall is found within a shadowy, woodland setting.
