"With every sweep the lighthouse did spy,

The outlines of a bunny and two pegasi.

They are enjoying the crisp evening breeze,

and blossoms above keep the ponies at ease.

This eve they remember why they're not always in flight,

For only from the ground can you take in such a sight."

Go check out all the awesome rhymes by ~Rhyming-Zecora!

Edit - Added the following ideas since I was planning on making fixes anyways.
Sokolas' Suggestion - Falling Petals to help fill the background, I didn't make it so a lot of petals would fall, so it didn't fill the left-side, but it adds a nice bit of flow to the overall drawing!
StopShot pointed out the lack of shadow on the inside of Fluttershy's kimono sleeves.

Fixed a stray line near the tree - Added a subtle fix to the lighting around Dashie's eyes and Fluttershy's ear.

Drawing posted way later than intended, both 'cause it took forever, lots of details and all, that and the 5 hour worth of work loss due to not saving blah. It's also 1AM over here and I gotta wake up in like . . . 5 hours lul~ Nonetheless worth it to finish this drawing! I can now move on to the next task as well!

Since it's late, I might need to check a few things later.

A very beautiful piece, invoking a lot of thought and emotion. I found myself sighing at the overall peaceful tone. What especially stands out in the picture are Angel (what a cute touch, adding her!) Fluttershy's silky clothing, and the soft, almost pink moon. However, I do see trouble with the moon's and the lighthouse's light's reflection in the water. The ocean's a very bright white. Fluttershy takes up a lot of the screen, but I can see why she'd be posing that way and Rainbow Dash would be lying down like her casual, carefree self.
Beautiful, but there is room for improvement.

Oh my gosh, that's gorgeous. I love the yukata that Fluttershy is wearing.
(note: if that's not a yukata, then I'm retarded and it's still very pretty.)

The difference between a Yukata and a Kimono is the different fabric, but more notably that the Yukata is mainly for summer and as bathrobes.

Kimono has two collar bands 'though, as shown in this drawing as that's what I referenced.

Problem is that I'm pretty inconsistent (I haven't read this article thoroughly at the time of the drawing) as kimono have to have socks+shoes with it. So let's just completely ignore these rules and say both yukata and kimono are both the correct answers! =D

Oh and thanks~

Very nice. Fluttershy looks cute, as always. I like that feather-Earing of RD ^-^
Buuut... something seems wrong with Angel Bunnys Eyes to me.
