Não gosto de aranhas. Mas a foto está muito boa.

A nice shot of this Wolf Spider. A little shallow on DOF, but the detail that is in focus is great. Nice colord and composition.

Grande Thiago. Essa foto ficou show. As cores estao otimas. Poderia ter aumentado a profundidade de campo para deixar as patas com nitidez. Mas no geral a foto esta otima. Bom trabalho.



Unha foto bonita. Capturaches unhs detalhes moi bons to corpo mais o F.2,8 ficou un pouco curto para as patas. Nao tiven moito tempo ultimamente, mais boteille un vistazo a tua galeria e gusto moito da "pelexa de formigas", unha foto fantastica. Gracias por compartila en bemvido a TN.
(Noa falo portugues, falo galego, espero que entendas :D )

Nice shot, you got wonderful details of the body but your F:2,8 was a too short for the legs.
I did not have much time lately, but I had a look at your gallery and I loved the "war of ants", a very nice shot. Thanks for sharing and a big welcome to TN.

Thiago, foto estupenda. As cores estão vívidas e bonitas. Ângulo excelente, assim como a nitidez.

Uma curiosidade: seria interessante saber também a velocidade usada por você, já que a abertura você forneceu. Afinal, estamos aqui para aprender, não é mesmo?


Thiago, meus parabéns, muito boa foto.

Bela foto da aranha lycosa, nossa conhecida de jardins.
Sua composição esta muito boa e o contraste com o verde das folhas deixou-a em evidencia. Ótimo foco, parabens
