Another shot of the same spider the other day, this time with a mate.

This was levels, a little velvia plugin to bring out the colours more, slight sharpen, crop and resize.

Crit please - thats how we learn from others!

Wow ! What a wonderful couple that you have very well captured ! I appreciate to be able to compare the male and female... Congratulations Tim and thanks for sharing.

Hi Tim,
I really like this shot! Great job on a difficult exposure with the very bright backround. That bright backround caused loss of detail of the web, but that just makes the spiders seem to be floating. Good colors and details in this shot. I like the tight framing. Some may say it is to tight of a crop, but I don't agree on that. The smaller spider is a real bonus and adds greatly to the overall composition. Well done.

This one is great Tim. Excellent DOF and the second spider adds great interest. The exposure and colors are very much improved over the last post of this guy...
I might've gave it a tiny bit of USM and cloned out those tiny dark sensor spots seen on the white BG. Well done.
Thank You!

Nothing to crit my friend. Great detail and excellent POV. Cannot see the web and that gives the photo a very weird look.

Great job

Tim, I have the feeling the shot could be a little bit sharper, but, anyway, it's just an opinion.

Great moment, very nice photo.

I like colors and composition a lot.

Hi Tim,
Great capture. Like the framing, contains the image well. The legs lof the bigger spider leads the eye to the centre of the image and then you notice the smaller spider. You could probably boost colour saturation a bit and get away with it on this one.

Great shot of these spiders Tim! Spiders are my favorite and you got it two of them in a frame! Focusing, details, moment you captured all are perfect! Thank you and best reagards!
