[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A spider web, spiderweb, spider's web or cobweb (from the obsolete word "coppe", meaning "spider") is a device built by a spider out of proteinaceous spider silk extruded from its spinnerets. Insects can get trapped in spider webs, providing nutrition to the spider; however, not all spiders build webs to catch prey, and some do not build webs at all. The word "cobweb" is usually used for a web inside a house, where dust has gathered on the sticky silk, forming long, hanging streamers.

Thankyou for your comments

Hi Joe,
i love these types of shots, the way the droplets hang in the air never ceases to impress me.
Excellent backdrop for these little jewels to hang against, a well seen and thought about composition. Great work.

Very nice shot.
Excellent composition and good contrast with BG.

salut Joey,
bonne imadée d'avoir joué avec l'eau et la toile d'araîgnée, l'effet est intéressant dans la texture et la couleur. Je pense que plus de lumière dans les gouttes donnerai de la brillance et plus de visibilité aux fils.
well done


bonjour joe
c'est un sujet interressant,lorsque l'on s'approche on voit l'environement dans le gouttes d'eau.

Hi Joe,
A beautiful jewel furnished tray. Very nice composition, details and background. Excellent work. Thanks a lot for sharing.

You sure they don't sell Lysergic acid diethylamide over there in England? It's a long story which creeps up on me sometimes...magical web...yes of course...all things are magical but especially a web such as this...it can do fun things with light and macro which you have discovered I see. Nice job and an interesting trail to follow deeper.


Hello Joe,
This is simply but very effective. Those details and tones of colors are great! Well done and TFS,

Hi Joe,
I also had posted a shot of these hanging jewels sometime back. They really look awesome and beautiful, all thanks to those creepy spiders. This is fabulously done with immaculate sharpness and details. Excellent POV and very nicely composed and presented. Kudos.

Nice symmetry Joe, I like the greens of the OOF BG ..Definitely not a "cobweb" :)

Hi Joe,
A wonderful abstract nature photo with very good details and great colors. I really like the shallow DOF in this photo since it makes me focus on just a few drops.
