Is this acceptable?

Is this an acceptable level of water coming from the exhaust for my truck?

It was run for the length of the other movie I posted in Gen. Tech/Elec.

There is a slow rev to 2.5k, and quick rev to about 4k.

And the other thing worrying me, is a sweet, or decomposing smell coming from the exhaust, as well as a few spark plugs when changed.

PS: The only smoke seen is when I shut the engine off / restart. But there was also light coming from above, and I can't tell if it's smoke from the exhaust, or light refraction/reflection.

Water is byproduct of combustion. Once the exhu cool the water vapor will condensate.
