Well I have been waiting so long for a challenge to come up, where I can use my spotted rubber duck.

I thought of a great idea, re this challenge, with unrelated objects, like a duck with a hat, or a duck with a bow tie.

I just love this one, with the dark rimmed glasses, with funky eyebrows. I then put the duck with his funky glasses, into my half wine barrel, which is my waterlily frog pond, in my tropical garden, to take this photo.

He remind me of a professor, so just had to call it "Professor Quack".....

Shot in the "Raw" format, and didn't do much processing at all, except for a tiny bit of cloning, to remove unwanted spots. Also a tiny bit of burning and dodging.

Hope you all like it.....

This one too, Shez, is quite quite underrated. I'm thinking that unless its a toy challenge, it seems photos of toys don't score too well in the challenges. But this is executed perfectly: crisp, bright and vivid. Composed well. Cute concept. You did great.

This is such a cool and funny shot! I really love your idea and thought this would end up higher. "Well I have been waiting so long for a challenge to come up, where I can use my spotted rubber duck." You can use it again this week :)

Background feels a little busy to me, as do light splotches on right of duck in water. However, the colors are beautiful.
