Wow, I didn't know I was that close to a DQ. I guess I'll have to read the challenge a little closer next time. Its really the Atlantic Ocean on a beautiful day. Thank you for your time and valuable comments.

Very nice crisp image. Focus is great. I like the clarity of the main subject. Bright colors add to the visual appeal of the duckies. Speaking of Duckies, the challenge did call for ONE duck. You got many DQ requests and the SC vote was split decision on weather to DQ or not, so I think you got lucky on this one.
Your strong horizon line is leaning slightly to the right. I don't know if that's a real body of water or a photo of water, but I think that it works well either way with the subjects.
It's hard to take a challenge like this seriously under the circumstances, but you did a very good job (except for the 2 ducks instead of one). I am not sure what the 3 light sources are, but the lighting is very good either way. Very nice set up, fun image and appealing to look at. The border also works well with this shot in my opinion. ~Heather~

I see only two light sources, but the second ducky compensates that. I like your interpretation of 'light source', it never occured to me that it doesn't have to be lit. There might be less sky and more stone. 8.

I almost made the same mistake as you. My original shot had 5 rubber duckies. Then when I was about to submit, I re-read the rules that states one rubber duckie. I hope you don't get DQed as this is a good picture. Good Luck

Rules said "rubber duck" I'm not sure if two rubber ducks are aloud especially if they were so explicit about the five grapes. My low vote is based on the wording of the rules. But I like the image.

Very cute photograph. Love the expression on the baby rubber ducky's face. Great use of color, contrast. Sharp focus. Very creative take on this strange theme.
