A spider with its victim in its jaws! I liked the shape, which becomes even more prominent in black and white. Hope you like it.

hi victor,
very impressive capture. good use of lighting and composition.
b&w suited very well for this frame. this image deserves better title, many are scared by this beautiful creatures and you are only encouraging them. no 'nightmare' this one, atleast in india. tfs.

Bonne idée que d'avoir présenté cette photo en noir et blanc.
Bonne journée.

Hello Victor, Nice shot and good use of B&W here. Nice composition. I would love to see the other view with eyes in focus. But thats a choice. This is also equally better. Ganesh

Hi Victor.
Amazing idea and great use of W/B hey of execution. I like light effects, terrific details of the spider. We can see even tiniest hair on the body and legs. I also like wonderful framing and composition of the image. My compliments and TFS.

Amazing shot! Great choice of b&w! Great light effect and composition!

Hello Victor !
Yoi gave this picture the appropriate name (in my opinion) for I am really afraid of spiders and this one looks specially frightening, because of the B/W effect. Excllent sharp details, wonderful composition and POV, and I like the strands of spiderweb we can see. The light coming from behind and making the legs look translucent looks fantastic, makes the spider stand out very well from the BG. Very well done !

great close up, wise use of b&W, TFS Ori
