Um ... silliness ;-) Light sources were faint sun, lamp to the left of the picture and flashlight underneath the ice hole. Red = Swedish fish candy, vegetable = broccoli, string = fishing line. And a ducky. That's everything!

PP - rotated, cropped, white balance, levels, increased saturatiopn and contrast, dodged/burnt duck and fish, gradient filter on lower left corner, cloned out a harsh line under the ice and a bit of tape showing on the duck, colored parts of ice bluer to blend in, resized, sharpened, blurred far background and a little snow more, added border.

Man, you almost made a ribbon. I gave this an 8 and didn't know whose it was. :)

One can only speculate what a Rubber Duck, fishing with a bit of Jelly as bait is hoping to catch . . but it's a great shot.

Nice. Great use of broccoli with the crushed ice, that really contains the scene and focus the eyes.

Nice idea and wonderfully put together. Nice details, great colors and the lighting is wonderful. A lucky coincidence or mayhap you searched for the right duck -- the expression is great for the ducky really does look happy to have caught the fish:-)
