Rubber duck & socks - 35pts, Third place

This image of his fiancé was made in the Czech Republic in an old abandoned house that Yari knew had eerie lighting. ‘My fiancé is a ballet dancer, so I had an idea to put a little water on the ground in front of her and set a rubber duck in the puddle,’ he says. ‘ I thought the yellow contrasted well against her red socks.
