This looks like it has an internal story, most of which we do not know, but the feeling of a story is there. She looks to me as if it's evening and she's about to retire to her place of rest with her pet rabbit. She's just not quite ready yet.

I love the environment you've created. I think a few more flowers in the lighter area, though dark, would brighten the overall image a little bit more.

The technique you used to create the lightening bugs is good, I just don't think they'd make that much bright reflection on the nymph. Something to think about. :)

So, overall, you made a very nice deviation.

First, thanks for entering the spring nymph contest! This is a great entry! I love the fact that your spring nymph is very unique. You made great use of the required stock.

While you did a great job applying shadows on the nymph and snake (I almost missed it!)I gave you 3 stars on technique because of the lighting.
If it's night, your light background would be darker... Then the light coming from the bugs would cause more dramatic shadows on the nymph.

Also, the two butterflies on the left have a different light source than their surroundings.

Lastly, the bunny does not look like he's sitting on that knee very comfortably... Perhaps try changing his pose so it looks like he's sitting on top of her knee, instead of the side.

You did good work on this :) I hope you find my critique helpful and not harsh. Thanks!
