Got this rubber duck from a friend of mine on New Year's eve. Placed it on a black and round paper basket.

Lighting is from two flashlights. One is inside the basket and lights the bottom from the rubber duck up. The other one is on the top of the head of the rubber duck.

Picture processing: Shot in raw mode. Sharpened picture a little bit for web, no other adjustements. Added Border.

Personally I hate ducks, however the lighting is exceptional and the mesh/screen base really adds another dimension to this image. Nice sharp clean image. Well done Simply nothing to deduct points for "10"

Rubber Duckies RAWK +1 rubber ducky pt

This is a great rubber ducky shot. (And if anyone tells you it's too centered,..."ima gonna slap'm" They do not understand the spiritual focus of the rubber ducky.

And you've captured it quite well; great clean lines, on a superb foreground with reflection and texture that adds to the duckies mantra instead of detracting.


Of course, i'm a bit bias when it comes to rubber duckies...

Great emphasis on the shape of the duck, and the repeating shapes in the whatever the duck is on. I love the lighting.

Nice lighting, color, and reflective base. Not-so-central and not-so-side-on composition would be better.

I'm not sure what the title means, but I really like the composition and the profile image of the rubber ducky.

Hah! This is flawless. I hope it does well. I submitted what I thought was a flawless ducky months ago and was hammered. All my duckies have been hammered, but to be fair only one was flawless LOL.
