I like the angle. Good details and focus.
Nice choice for the frame. Parabéns!


Thats a beautiful shot - very powerful diagonal there. Minuses are visible in the noise, blown highlights and strange ufo lights at the bottom but overall I'd say this image is very pleasing. Thanks for sharing!

Hello Alejandro!
Very nice spider close up.Details and framing are wonderful.TFS...:-)

Hi Alejandro,
Good sharp detail and colours. Great POV.
Nicely composed and good exposure.
Thanks for posting. Have a great weekend.

Very good capture!
Excellent composition and lighting,
great sharpness and details.
Well done and thank you!

Hi Alejandro,
Excellent composition, and the use of light and shadow here.
The detai, DOF, and colors look great. Very nice work!

Nice composition and lighting in this one. Khris pointed out the minuses. The light renders part of the spider translucent, which is very nice to look at.
f/2.8 gives you not much DOF, but you focused correctly on the "face" and body. You could handhold lower than 1/400, so I would suggest to use a larger f/stop. 1/60 should still work, 1/100 to be on the safe side.
In any case a picture pleasing to the eye, well done!

Hi Alejandro, a very good view of this spider. I love the composition and the details are pretty good. You've done very well with the lighting although there are some OE patches on the vegetation.

Well done.


Buena composicion con esta excellente diagonal en gradiente.
Me gusta la luz que convierte partes de la araña en translucidas.
Sigo pensando que si utilizaras un programa como el NeatImage antes del procesado, eliminarias el molesto ruido caracteristico de la Lumix en el fondo de los macros, y tus fotos quedarían mucho más finas.
Saludos y buen fin de semana!
