Wanted to make the glow-in-the dark duckie one of the light sources but all others out-shined him :(

As many have stated, this does appear to be a very busy photo. It does have all the elements that it requires for the challenge, although a little difficult to see right away, when you take the time to look at the photo, the elements are all there.
Focus seems right on for such a dark shot. The faucet seems very crisp in focus and nothing appears blurry.
The theme is cute, definately original.
I will comment on a few things. I don't particularily care for the word duck written in the water. It seems out of place to me, and adds to the busy-ness of the photo. I am wondering also if the water could be just a solid blue, and that would cut out the extra blue splotches, and clean up that area of the photo. Another suggestion would be to have used a solid color for the background. I see something that looks like a wave, but it looks like a cloth of some sort. Maybe a solid color for that would have cleared up that area of the photo. I like the dolphins, that's really my favorite part of the image, but I don't feel like they fit in well with the rest of the photo. So, if you seperate the photo into sections, it doesn't seem bad at all. All nice elements, but together they seem to clash a bit.
There is a very white area on the sink near your 'plank' that draws a lot of attention, so when trying to figure out what's going on on the plank, I keep noticing that white/bright area.
The grapes are cute. Overall, it looks like a fun image, a little busy, but has lots of good elements. ~Heather~

This is the strangest combination of colors and items I've seen in any challenge - and I love it! It's got to be the maroon against the neon blue - but who knows!

Very chaotic. Too much going on, and nothing is really outstanding.

becomses too busy overall... i like individual sections, especially the top left with the white and blue lights, and the section with the faucet and the stuff above it and the red cloth, but all together there just seems to be too much
