It looks like you have that D200 and Sigma 105 firmly under control now. Excellent shot, great focus and detail, exposure also. Fantastic result for such a slow shutter speed. DOF is on the mark, a great shot.

Autumn... how sad. Few days ago Spring came and your post remaind me about Winter... But so far we've got heat in Poland. Heat and plague of spiders. Like your. Perfect macro with every piece of spiders body and web very clear and well visible. Classic composition, very nice colours and excellent note.

Great shot. Technically excellent with great comp, exposure and sharpness. Looks like you are climbing well up the D200 learning curve now.

Coincido con Aido sobre el excelente DOF Robert con una clásica pero efectiva composición.
Los colores y los detalles, tanto de la araña como de su tela, son muy buenos asi como el simétrico encuadre.
Saludos cordiales... Ricardo
I coincide with Aido about an excellent DOF Robert with one classic but effective composition.
The colors and the details, so much of the spider as of its web, they are very good as well as the symmetrical framing. Cordial greetings... Ricardo

There is many of those pics on TN but this one has something more. It is amazing to look at the tension in the web at each at the leg tips. Very great DOF: spider entirely sharp and background totally defocused. Well done.

this is a very good shot with good details and DOF.
Agree with Adrian, it's seems that you have been good friend with your equipment.
Well composed,good POV and nice colours.
Very well done.
Good shot! You've captured this spider well, I particularly like the background seperation you've achieved here. About the only thing I'd suggest is a little high radius USM to give it a bit more punch - try 45%, 250px, 0 and see what you think. I agree with the others though, you're definitely getting to grips with your D200 now - well done :D
