The most simple of about 200 Ducky shots I took (you may look forward to lots of interesting outtakes). Yet took several hours to make the setup, and I'm afraid, the complexity of this shot won't be honored by the voters.

Wished this had been Advanced editing, I hate the gray areas in the upper corners.

I voted ducky II, but somehow missed this one. The setting and composition are impressive. Great job!

This is SERIOUSLY underrated, in my opinion. I really like looking at this. *sigh*

Simple, but so effective, and yes, I see how you did this, and it would have taken a while to set up..... I like it a lot. I also like some of your 'outtakes' as well.

Lighting, focus, color are all spot on in this above average shot. The composition is minimalism at it's best. The yellow ducky really pops off the white backdrop and instantly calls the eye's attention to it. Soap bubbles were a nice addition to add to visual interest and invoke the idea of a bubblebath with the ducky.

This is alluring.I think a slight bit of color in the background miught bring out the bubbles a bit but this certainly is a minimal and beautiful approach.
