This is pretty cool. The focus is good and the mirror works well. You have quite an imagination,......... to think this might win.
Just kidding. :) You did well.

Great weather for ducks :-)

I'm also surprised this only got one comment but obviously the voters liked it. The timing with the (sugar?) was perfect to get the feeling of rain and the irony of your set up as mentioned by ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' bohemka was very clever. Perhaps cropping out the reflection from the bottom may have increased your score but we will never know.

The logical flaws with this photo are nearly too much to overcome. Like a duck would need a boat? Or an umbrella for that matter? It's absolutely preposterous. That said, it's very well executed and a cute scene, and I was only kidding in the first place. Nice one.
