Hello Ersin,
nice point of view and good details. Some parts of the spider's body appear overexposed.
I tried to identify the spider but I did not come to a final conclusion. The specimen looks very similar to Neoscona adianta (Aranaeidae).
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Ersin

Brrrr…although I know they are not harmful to humans I still prefer to see these critters on a photo that at close proximity for such a shoot as this. You did well and showed us this arachnid in a lovely presentation.

Although the spider occupies the centre point of the frame I still find the composition great, because of the angle of the orb and the patterns created by the very visible web. The colours are good, the details are great, the BG is well removed and complimentary, and the lighting was well managed (just a little OE on the bright body parts).

Good work and TFS.

HI Ersin,
I think this time the flash was aimed a bit high; burnt detail on the abdomen and dark shadow on the front legs. Was it not possible to take the shot using natural light?
All the same, you took an excellent POV and composed diagonally, which works fine.

Hello Ersin,

Me too, I think that you chose well the presentation by having it center in the image! Even if the white are a little bit OE, I like your picture with this great bg. Looking at spider means therapy for me... So TFS :-)


Merhaba Ersin.
Mükemmel bir makro. Detaylar çok net ve çok güzel. Renkler olağanüstü. Bu sene kış yaşadık sayılmaz henüz. Çok güzel bir çalışma olmuş. Ellerine sağlık. Diğer örümceklerini merak ettim. Selamlar
