The first thing I see here is obviously the 3 light sources. I think it's a cute idea, but I'm not so sure it worked to your advantage to put the light sources so close. The work light is blown out. Way too bright. That same light then washes out parts of your duckie and grapes as well. See the back of his head and tail? Too Bright there.
Because the work light is so bright, it looks like the flashlight is not on.
Focus seems soft, and that might be because of the harsh lighting. I like the glass he's in. I am assuming that the bubbles are in the glass not in the water. I have glasses like that.
You definately have all the elements that you're suposed to have. Duck, water, grapes, blue background and light sources.
The arrangement of the lights doesn't seem to serve a purpose. Actually, the candle and the flashlight are probably not doing much at all, since the work light is so bright. While I like the arrangement of the duck,glass, and grapes...I'm not so sure about the lights.
I wonder what kind of shots you could have had with the lights OUT of the picture. Or at least the work like a little farther away from the duck.
Overall a cute setup, but suffers from too much light I think.

This one is hysterical - You should get a special ribbon just for reading the rules! Even the second form of water shows your attention to detail.
