[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a young rabbit which was foraging at sunset one day while I was on holiday at Center Parcs, Suffolk. I really like the effect of the light on it's fur and the complementing background but there's one pretty major fault that really bugs me about this shot. It's an OK shot but I think it could have been really great. I'll leave it to you to see if you can spot it.

hello Andy,
This is really a lovely shot by its subject and by the beautiful light you caught. I hope you don't mind because of this blurry two grasses wich are on the back of the rabbit. This is nature and you cannot always eleminate everything which is in the way. Maybe you think at something else.. I tell you I prefer natural pictures with some minor faults than a too smooth picture.
Best regards

Hi Andy. Yes i do agree with Anne is it the grass at the back of the Rabbit. If so this was taken in the wild and not a studio. To me it a first class shot. good use of the light which has given warm colours and fine detail. well done tFS.
Have a nice weekend.

Hello Andy , fantastic picture , great light colours compositie pov and bg beautifull ,tfs Good Weekend , Teunie .

Simply beautiful Andy.
This great setting makes the image something special.
You couldn't have caught the rabbit in a better place.I suppose it is slightly soft,but I see a another rather annoying fault .... if only your POV was just a little higher so that you didn't have that OOF bit in the foreground. Its pretty hard to crop out and still get a balaced shot ;) .... Oh well,next time you'll know.
A stunning capture.

What a lovely capture with awesome lighting. Your rabbit is so well placed in the frame and you have handled the exposure perfectly. The OOF foreground is a shame as the composition you have here is very strong. I have done a workshop and cropped it to a panorama as one possible solution, much as I really like the way you have already framed your shot. A shot you can be proud of nonetheless (even though you are unhappy with the point of focus). :)
