|This spider was crawling sideways on a wall, I liked how he is staring me down trying to figure out what i'm doing. He was just a little striped one, not sure what species but I know they can jump really far. Although with him being so small, the details are harder to see on this low res version. Hope you like it.|

Hi Kirk and welcome to TrekNature. as far as I can see is this little spider is pretty sharp. Usually on shots like this you would crop the spider out of such a large frame to appear to be more of a closeup shot. That is a lot of background and side space for such a tiny target. Looks like you hit your focus correctly but cropping the little guy would make it a lot better.
Welcome to TN!
I think you did very well on POV and focus here. The spider's pose is lovely. I agree that it would be good to crop the picture more. We could see more details on the spider then.
I see you have very similar camera to mine. I guess than that it has very similar macro capabilities - that is great capabilities as for a simple compact camera. I have some experience with macro shooting with Coolpix and I can tell you that 4cm is more than enough. You can check my gallery if you like. I have some spiders there too.
Anyway, I still think this is a very good opening shot and looking at it a little longer I begin to like this space. Makes the spider looks tiny.
