The last one looks the best to me. The water was a bit overexposed but good try . Did you use any filter?

I think you shoot a little bit too late. Best time to shoot waterfalls are 7-9am, that's when before the sun shines too much, therefore causing overexposed shots. If you're late then ND filter will help avoiding overexposure.

Didn't use any filter. Now want to buy one ND filter since you guys always talking about it. In my possesion, I have just CPL filrer. Can it be used in this kind of situation?

Actually I realize it quite a bit late. Arrive there bout 8.30am but for Sabah it's like 9.30am in Semenanjung. So the sun already rise-up and the water been exposed to much by the light. Don't have ND filter. Actually I also bit dissapointed with the product. Must go next time to that place very early morning. Try to do it dalam masa terdekat ini.

What are the higher f stop that apperture can go with manual mode? Is it depends on the lens? Using this lens Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G and the highest I get was f/22.

I used CPL in my Sg. Congkak shots. Works quite well. F22 is good enough as you don't want diffraction softness.
