Most excellent DOF. This one popped out at me from the thumbs as visually appealing. Really like your composition and crop.

great idea and capture. Not too thrilled about the lighting used. The DOF might be a little too shallow as well. 6

Hmmm, the bowl seems a little crooked (rotating the shot a little would have solved that), the eye of the front duck is a little munted (could you have used a different duck as the star?), the red of the soup is good but maybe it would have been better if it were a little darker and the DOF wasn't so shallow so we could see a little more of it.

Nice idea and good colour choice for the soup which works well against the beaks of the ducks, but I think the composition could have been a bit better. Nice DOF as well but a bit of a shame about the eye damage on the leading duck which was probably easily remedied by using one of the other two.

Good job overall.
