Wow, this one was a battle. White bg, bright lights and shiny plastic-almost-clear bottle things kept getting lost. Blown, blown, blown, blown. Then I added a blue gel to the bg light and viola! It was just enough to clearly show the outline of the bottle and hold down the blown areas. PS included lightening a shadowy area a bit and adjusting colors; then the usual levels, usm and save for web. :)

Oh, how did I get the ducky in the bottle? Well cut off the bottom, of course. The bottom of the bottle is sitting in a bowl of water, keeping the water in the bottle from escaping. Simple. And no, I never opened the lid.

I love it. Do well little ducky! :)

Lose the plastic duck. IMO it adds nothing to the photo and its not funny anymore. Sorry.

Nice idea. Too cute and funny. Might be better in portrait mode or with a slightly tighter crop for a larger subject. Fun photo magic!

I love em simple and colorful. wish the bottle were straight though, i.e. no nutrition info or logo visible.
