    Got a chance to get out today and get a couple shots. Trying to get used to my diopter but ended up shooting 1:1 insted. These were the best of the day. Nothing spectacular today but fun. This is my first robber fly. (if it is a robber)

    I like the first one. 2 has lighting issues and 3 has a colorcast

    Taylor, thanks for the comment. I agree that the light is very strong in the second. I shot this at mid day (5 pm) so the sun was very intence. might be much better early or later in the day but its when i could get out. I do not have a flash yet to correct the lighting so its what nature gives me.. For the fly i know its not the best but thought i would share the iconic robber. was happy just because its my first capture of this species. :)

    Try using a reflector like a paper plate or cardboard covered in foil

    Nice shots stormchase, 1st one is awesome, great colour, nice and sharp, great background OOF, oneof the "prettiest" spider pics I have seen in awhile. :thumbup:

    Last one as said has a colour cast, easily fixed, could do with some slective sharpening, levels and fix the dust spots, all easy. Again a really nice OOF background.

    When I saw banana spider I knew you were from Florida. That is the local name for those.

    One word then...gimp, no more excuses ;)

    Think of DPP for global adjustments, and gimp for local when needed.
