Good contrast of imagery in this. Well done.

At first, i though it was a railway line :) Would have been better with a wider DOF, more details of the beach would emerge.

What's a DPC challenge without a rubber duck?

Life's a beach...and then you marry one. Nice composition.

This wouldn't be DPC without at least one Ducky. Great colors. Congrats!

Interesting optical illusion of the duck sitting on a surface lower than the ocean, with a sharp edge right behind the duck.

great angle on this beach shot, works with or without ducky, but that is one sure ducky

That's one large bathtub! Great lines, colors, sharp details.

DOF and lighting are really nice, I think the yellow looks great against the blue and you got some nice clouds.

I have a soft spot for duckies that might help make up for the ducky-haters :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

It doesn't look like the warmest day for ducky to take a dip!

Made me smile.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 03:32:32 AM
I'm totally with the rubber duck on this one. I wish the DOF was deeper to encompass the sky as well
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 03:22:58 AM
try crop this to get the horizon off center - nice image nevertheless

He he out for a vacation? Good placement of the subject.

Good luck, you've gotta love Ducky shots ;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Quite nice. The colors of the sky are just a tiny bit too green/yellow to be natural, but actually I think it lends itself to the duckie quite well. The duckie could be a bit brighter and it seems like I can see a lens shadow from the flash or...

The overall picture works quite well and I also appreciate the tone of the sand which complements the strength of the other lines.

Great title and color. Well done.

not a lot to interest really
03/11/2009 09:04:24 PM
I love how gorgeous the back drop is to such a "silly" subject. Rubby ducky at it's finest! FUN!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 08:26:41 PM
great leading lines on the horizon and beach. love the color contrast of the rubber duckie on the texture of the broken shells. good job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:27:45 PM
thats something you don't see every day!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 06:11:29 AM
Love the duck, unusual foreground lighting - Is it a fill flash? Anyway, nice leading lines along the beach, I would have liked a stronge rule of thirds. Good luck.

Just ducky.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 02:41:44 AM
This one made me smile .... I love it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 02:37:37 AM
I might dodge that dark cloud on the top right of the frame. It is a little heavy in the sky. It pulls the eye away from the duck and the perspective of the beach.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:50:11 AM
Nice little bit of whimsy.
