Or should I say Jackalop? This is Cubby, a buck two-year-old mini-lop. After too many attempts, Cubby has suffered enough indignity, including the addition of a red nose to be a Christmas Jackalope. None of the images came out very well, mostly due to unattractive poses. Some shots had a nice backlight, but not this one. Key flash on left is Canon 580EX in 60" Photek Softliter II, fill is 580EX on camera with Lumiquest Big Bounce, ratio 6:1. I don't expect it to do well, but I hope that someone gets a laugh.

ACR, PS crop, highlights, spot editing, saturation, resize, convert color profile, USM, save for web.

I have a funny story, quickly. I went to Wyoming this year, and I totally thought these things were real. I confront my buddy, and tell him that I am totally into getting a photo of one of these. We were pretty tipsy, and everybody at the party was laughing at me. Needless to say I never got the photo. LOL. BTW cool photo.

5 - Like the concept. The background/base color isn't enhancing this image as much as perhaps a color matching the 'antlers' may have. Perhaps also a little less empty space at the top.

Funny! I like the shot, just wish the background was a different colour. It's a bit too flat to me. Still made me smile though, I gave you a 7

Being from Wyoming I have to give you at least an extra point or two for featuring The Legendary jackalope.

The one thing that I'm REALLY enjoying about this challenge (besides the fact that I'm terribly obsessed with animals) is the humor that a lot of people have shown in their photos! Even your title makes me smile!

Cute idea although the bunny doesn't look too happy about it! Lighting around the eye makes it look lie s/he's cryingor has a goober. Otherwise very well lit for a black bunny.
