[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While walking in my uncle's rubber plantation i came across this strange spider.
i had taken around four shots just to be safe...but only this was the best of the lot. Yup it would have been better if the spider was centered but my luck was bad.
i have no clue as of yet what kinda spider it is. doing some research on the net to find. shall post it once i get any. tried sharpening in photoshop but didn't like it.

krishnagopal, Welcome to TN. This is indeed an exotic spider. The shot could do with more sharpness and for the composition I suggest to get the whole subject in the frame.
Greetings, Jan


I understand how hard it is to capture a spider shot especially when they're very small in size. I agree with Kooreman that the sharpness could be better. Personally I think that you shouldn't put your subject too far on the left. Remember rule of 3rds?

Krishnagopal, namaste. A very interesting spider.Perhaps you could tell us more about it (look it up in a book or on the internet).If you tell us more about how you took the shot,we can give you better advice. (We are supposed to add notes like this,anyway). Its a shame about the focus and framing.With a shot like this,it is worth taking 2 or 3 just to make sure you get a good one. A good find though. Thanks.
