Brilliant shot, very sharp and nice DOF although I think it could be cropped a bit on the right.
Many thanks, Ulla

Hi Jitti,
Wonderful details in this action shot! Very good details, light and -as you say- the composition in the WS is more equilibrated.

Hallo Jitti,
phantastic and well composed picture directing and arresting the view to the two main 'activists'.

Hi Jitti,
it'a a nice picture with good action you show us.
Good details, nice colours and good DOF.
Well done.

Hi Jitti,

Hi Jitti

as usual from you - a perfect and rare macro shot

lynx spiders (Oxyopidae) are incredible predators !

Interesting scene of these hunters. Colors, exposure, background, DOF and sharpness are very good. Me too, I prefer the second picture in workshop... Congratulations Jitti and thanks for sharing.

Hi JC,
Yes I think I agree, the WS is a tad better balanced composition wise...
Excellent DOF resulting in very fine details in the insects!
Spider fighting spider... very interesting situation and nicely captured, well done!

Hi Jitti,
A nice looking macro! The cycle of life is amazing. I have always said it is nice to be near the top of the food chain. Excellent colors and detail in this dramatic shot. Very cool!!! ;-}

Hi Jitti !
This Lynx Spider is really a strange spider, with those spiky legs... And you have captured a great moment ! Details, colors, composition and DOF are excellent, I like this picutre very much. Well done !

Hello, nice close up !
Colors and details are rich.
Good compo, too.

I prefer the WS pic.

Hi Jitti, nice macro and interesting moment captured. The details are very good with nice lighting and POV. I agree with your own thoughts about composition as mentioned in your workshop, but good work on both versions. TFS.

Bonjour Jetti
C'est une excellente prise de vue avec ce beau macro ! Il ne faut surtout pas se frotter apres cette araignée avec ces centaines de piquants.Une jolie composition et belles couleurs,
Merci pour le partage .
bravo et au revoir...JP

Hi Jitti,
What an amazing post! These insects look like being part of an experimental architectural project :) This is a great composition with excellent details and great explanations. Cool version in WS too. I liked it very much. TFS,
