I did not set out to shoot for this challenge, but when I found the engineer ducky at the Illinois Railway Museum, well, I just I had to try a few. Actually quite pleased with 5.4944 on this entry:

I actually like the last one best, but didn't think people would recognize the ducky is actaully on a real locomotive so I went with the one where it was obvious.

Anyone think the 2nd one would have been a better entry? Title was going to be something like: one of these ducks is not like the other....

I first submitted

Ducktor Who (Fourth Doctor)
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/40000-44999/43463/120/710039.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/40000-44999/43463/120/710039.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
But was not sure it was well known enough to be recognized.

My entry

Dah! Got the lighting right but completely forgot to shoot at a lower angle to get an interesting perspective like I did in the first 2 shoots.

As I mentioned that this was a result of 3 shoots over 3 days.
Shoot 1
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/40000-44999/43463/120/712437.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/40000-44999/43463/120/712437.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
Lights were not enough to blow out (turn white) edges on right hand side.

Shoot 2
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/40000-44999/43463/120/712438.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/40000-44999/43463/120/712438.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
I liked the angle and position of the ducks but due to a fold in the cloth you see a shadow that the lights were not able to blow out (turn white) in exposure on top right.

Okay, back and had two shots to choose from: This one which I did enter:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/903/120/710148.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/903/120/710148.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

And this one which would be the outtake:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/10000-14999/12448/120/712465.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/10000-14999/12448/120/712465.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I had the kids vote on which one to enter and with my vote it was a tie! So I went with my vote, what do you thinK?

Not sure this would have done any better

But pretty sure it wouldn't have done any worse!

I am sure this would have done better than my selection

I didn't get to enter this challenge. I was submitting the punk duck at 11:55 when my computer decided to have a mental breackdown. I was hoping to get some constructive criticism out of it. I don't think they would have placed high.
