Interesting idea. The combination of shiny and matte finishes add some texture to the photo. I like the simplicity of the composition - limited color palette, single object. Also like the hint of red on the bill, showing some "stuggle". Powerful use of the depth of field, drawing attention to the head of the duck, letting the pool of red just blur in the background - cool.
Not sure if I like the shadow behind the duck. With the high contrast to bring out the range of black, there will be shadow. Or can be edited out. Have you experimented with that?
