The Bastardization of Easter
Lens: 28mm Camera: K20D ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/180s Aperture: F5.6 



For our monthly greeting cards to friends, we shot this epic masterpiece. I am not looking for critiques any one area in particular, just looking for what can be improved on a whole. I hope no one is too offended by the shot, it is mostly just to show off my girlfriends bunny.

Strobist info (for those concerned): Vivitar 2800-d through white umbrella on camera right and lumopro lp120 zoomed into 85mm on camera left hitting backdrop from above.

While I see that you intended to mimic light shining on the cross to me it feels too much like a nasty specular highlight which is distracting. It's also pretty busy. No one spot your eyes are drawn to.

Cute bunny.

I agree with all of the above, I was looking for the kitchen sink.
Get rid of that distracting lighting (or come up with some that is more subtle) and pull back a bit. If you want to include a lot in the frame, you need to give all the elements there own space and not cut any in half.
