well i think this one was the most creative usage of the grapes. I was expecting it to do higher but i guess the technical quality let it down. great idea with the grapes but the towel doesn't work. if this was set up better it could have been the winner or at least one of the first three.

if the blue towel was not so well 'focused',( ieif you used a shallow DOF), this would have been a 10. great composition and colors. 8

So cute. Amazing how creative this is. Love the babie grape duckies. It made me laugh. Excellent job

I thought of something like this myself, but I wasn't clever enough to think of surgically updating the grapes to look, um, ducky. Well done. Focus more on the near grape duck and less on the towel backdrop would have made it a bit better.

I love the grapes...good work.

Yeah, that's creative. The title is chosen well. I'd have made the border a bit broader or left it all away though. 8.

Yes they do. Nice take on the theme.

the "busy" towel background is a bit straining on my eyes, but other than that, very funny :-)

supposed to be One duck...

Who'da thought! I guess you would!
This quacks me up! I start to snicker and it grows to a giggle and before you know it I can no longer contain myself! May visitors to your profile page have a long time to admire this as well!

Oooooops. I think there was only supposed to be one duck. But you know what? I'm not going to vote you down for it because I think anyone who went to the trouble to enter this challenge at all deserves kudos extra kudos :) It's cute and I like your picture!

Excellent! Great concept - wish I'd thought of it. Only thing I don't like is the choice of background, but great job!
