excellent shot with great details, sharpness, POV and colors. TFS

they get closer and closer..and sharper
your nikkor does you proud and the colours are superb
f27..boy i wish i could get that again...had 32 on my 55 macro nikkor..
the 200 secs is the difficult one for me...using flash at that distance may be the clue...speed doesnt count if you get synch ok? how did you get that with 1/200 sec..or are the digi cams higher synch speeds..?

This what i call nice... very nice ;-)) as i like insects etc.. and spiders are not insects but... this shot is sharp and what detail, excellent POV and sharpness, doet zo voort (keep it up)

Hi Frank.
Brilliant, perfectly done close-up shot. Amazing, excellently saturated colours. I like how you have selected DOF. This range of f-number is my favorable for macro shooting. Exposure, contrast are perfect too also as well as composition and cropping.
My best wishes and TFS.

Cool macro shot with nice details :)

Hi Frank,
Very interesting creature with 'icy' body. Greatly captured, well focused. Nice DoF. Colors are superb. Nice dark BG, giving a nice contrast to this white-and-icy spider.
Excellent shot.

Impresionante macro Frank con gran agudeza, impactante colorido y perfecta iluminación para enmarcar esta bella presentación.
Un adecuado DOF, foco y punto de vista, con un fondo ideal y muy atinado encuadre completan una composición de calidad.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Hi Frank,
What an amazing macro shot. These spiders are small and here I can see every small detail, sharp and beautiful.
My wife just looks over my shoulder - she thinks I am watching some SCI-FI/horror images...
Thanks for showing us this 'monster' :-)

Great shot with amazing clarity and sharpness. I wonder how you manage to make the background completely black which gives so much contrast to the picture. good work.
