So many times when you photograph natural scenes additional details can be brought out quite easily. Try it by simply duplicating the original background layer. Select the lasso tool, and have the feather pretty strong, maybe 30-50 pixels. Select and area roughly defined by its edges. Add some contrast, sharpness, and maybe push the color some with the color balance or hue adjustments. I also added to the motion of the water with the Motion Blur function. Again I just selected a portion of the water, copied it to a new layer, and blurred matching the alignment of the motion. Here are a couple other motion and texture enhanced examples...
