Good one Joanna. Great colours and the image asks a lot of questions. Good use of depth of field in diffucult situation. Cheers, Rob

Hello Joanna!
Wonderful spider close up.Lighting,clear details,sharpness,POV and composition are excellent.TFS...:-)

Ooh, a spider Joanna! Is it the same as Gregs? I don't think so. Nice and sharp, very clear, look at all it's hairs on its body and legs. Good photo, not so good subject:)

Kolejny wspinajacy sie pajak. Bardzo owlosiony.

It probably wasn't aware it was posing Joanna....but you were.The result is this beautifully captured macro portrait.The focus is more on the thorax and head,so the body loses a little.
The POV is good.If it were possible,I would have framed the spider with a bit more space (maybe 3cm) in front,and less behind (maybe 2cm).
It does look really really good as it is though.
The background has a cool Zen feel to it.
Excellent job.

Great light and POV.
Good details and framing.
Nice blurred BG.

Hello Joanna,

Well composed and good colors. The details are good, although I think the focus is a wee bit soft (you probably needed a slightly wider DOF). BG is great. Well done & TFS!


Hello Joanna!
One more cute spider from you;)Lighting,details and composition are wonderful.Thanks for sharing.

Hi Joanna
Excellent close up, details light and sharpness
In a friendly way Christophe

Witaj Joanno,
"zaczaili¶cie się" z Grzegorzem na paj±ki? Ciekawe barwy, chyba popołudniowe ¶wiatło. Podoba mi się.
Pozdr. Al.

he is playing in the light Joanna,
and you captured it very well, good composition, nice details and good colours, very good job,
gr. Jaap

Lovely light you have here Joanna. The details are sharp and the DOF a tiny bit shallow. I would have loved to see more facial details but don't know if the scene allowed for it. Very well done.

Joanna, maybe sharpness could be a little bit better, but that's just an opinion.

I like colors, pov and composition.

Excellent background.

It's an amazing shot. I like the sharp details. Very good composition and colours. Great work!
TFS, cordially,
