Oh, this time Embala said it so right- Pike got his own shine and spotlight while others blend to background- beautiful colouring indeed! And your use of light is fantastic.
It's funny- on the bw version I was sure he'd catch the rabbit, now with colours in I find the rabbit far more alert and wonder if it actually gets away..interesting psychological effect

And I love to see Windkin and Mender being pranky kids.
