Marvelous image!
Kudos on such a feel-good, happy shot that is absolutely first-rate in terms of composition, lighting and detail.
Very well done and now a favorite.

Yes, it looked South African to me too. Well done on the top 10 finish.

An excellent character study -- a pleasant surprise in a challenge I've been rather disappointed in otherwise!

looks like this could use some more contrast but the comp and expression on the model is great. 7

I love the man's expression. Something about the exposure. I wonder if you played with levels and curves and brought up the saturation a bit if it wouldn't really have the pop you were going for. The composition is good. The DOF puts the focus more on the man's eyes. Maybe a wider aperture would have put the whole image in focus, which, in this case, could have incorporated the duck too. OR maybe focus on the duck and not the man. Cute idea~~

lol he has such an engaging smile. Love the pose and would only wish the duck/hand was a bit lower. That aside this is very nice. Good light, color. Best of luck in the challenge.

Love that smile on this man's face as his big hand holds a small but cute ducky! Lighting and composition are excellent in this portrait style photo with a whimsical mood. As I hightlighted before it is your model's smile that makes this shot so appealing. The smile of this adult man coupled with this small rubber duck projects such a happy feel good mood that it is hard for the viewer NOT to smile. I cannot help but smile when looking at this image. Wonderful composition and well done: 10

the winner for me...this stood out as soon as I saw it, and when I clicked on the thumbnail and saw the image I was not disappointed! the blue, yellow and detail of the man's face and that pearly white smile...all makes an excellent image worthy of a 10
