Interesting shot (spider and POV), good DOF and details. Lovely warm colours, a spider shot that makes it really easy to like them. They are nicely complemented by the light-blue sky BG. A little bit of noise is there, especially at the top (Neat Image could remove that), but it is not very noticeable. Interesting note too, as I had seen the zigzag before and wondered about it.

Dieses Bild ist wieder einmal perfekt.
Der ungewöhnliche Hintergrund in weiß/hellblau bringt sie gut zur Geltung. Ein hübsches Tier, obwohl ich eigentlich Spinnen nicht gerade liebe. Auch die Erklärungen sind sehr aufschlußreich, vielen Dank.
Hier kann man so viel lernen, toll.
Viele Grüße und einen guten Wochenanfang

Martina, I came to know that my most recent post is also a spider - at first, I thought it was another bug.
I do enjoy your picture. The spider is a beautiful one; your picture shows this very well.
Great pov and composition. Dof could be a little better, but that's just an opinion.

Hello Electra! Good exposure, details and color in your shot. I like the way you've composed this head down..DOF could be a bit more, bringing the head/eyes in better. Nice shot!

Great shot. Lovely detail - if you like spiders. This is certainly a very nasty looking creature. Well done.

This is one of most beautifull spiders for sure. Very nice composition with sky as a BG. Nice, saturated colours on spider. Good work!

Hello Martina, I like this image. Colours came through well and it looks like the spider is suspended in th eair without anything holding it up. Well scene and well captured, I dont think it was an easy one. Regards, Rob

Hello Martina, nice shot. The composition is very good. I like the placement of the spider in the frame. It's also a great looking spider. I think you have done well with the lighting for the position of the spider. This kind of shot needs a smaller aperture than F4.5., there is a section of the abdomen that is in focus but there isn't enough DOF to get the rest sharp. I appreciate that light is an issue but if you are faced with that it is better to get the head and eyes in focus and let the rest slip out, the head and eyes are always a focal point for us viewers and if they are sharp then the viewers eyes can compensate for the rest.

Great macro shot! The combination of colors almost makes the spider seem translucent. Good composition.
