Hey Bora, this is one of the Orb web spiders aka Garden spiders, scientifically it's the Araneidae Family (aka Argiopidae). This looks like the Araneus angulatus species or maybe a species from the Gibbaranea genus, hard to tell because the photo is not very contrasted. I found this out on this website specialised in Spiders of NW Europe. It's a handy site for identification.
I have a little fellow of the same family hanging outside my window, he's one of my favourite macro models :)
TFS, Betty

Hello Bora,
Nice attempt. Perhaps things will go better for you the next time around.. Some good details seen on this interesting spider.
