    Do ask for specific help if you need any, you are sure to get more response and obviously better help!

    One big think I would concentrate on is using value effectively, at the moment things are very close in value and perhaps a bit arbitrarily so. Squint and you will see what I mean a bit better. A good guideline to experiment with, but perhaps not be bound to is place a dark object near a light area and a light area near a dark object. Think about a solid lightsource, and how you could use areas to your advantage. You could put the white bunny in shadow, or a darker field. Also, a greater variety of values will add interest; variety is the spice of life after all.

    Cheers!

    Idiot Apathy-
    Ok, thanks for the help! I tried adding more contrast in value, not sure if it's enough though...

    Update:
    I think it felt a little cramped so I added a bit to the sides. Anyone think the foreground tree is awkward or that the picture seems unbalanced? I'm not sure what else to do other than paint in more contrast.
