Excellent light, color, DOF, and sharp details as well.

Buenas noches Jose Luis,
Realmente has tomado una foto atractiva de esta araña. Lo has ajustado todo al máximo: el color, el contraste, los detalles, la composición, pero -sobre todo- la mirada de la araña.
Gran trabajo!
Un saludo cordial,

Gran nitidez Jose Luis a partir de un excelente DOF y del uso del flash, con un POV muy llamativo y un atinado encuadre, componen una interesante presentación.
Saludos... Ricardo

Genial, me encanta. Hacer fotos a traves de agujeros no es facil, pero conseguir este nivel de acercamiento y detalle tiene mucho merito. La mirada tiene mucha personalidad :)
