    "Spider Eclipse"

    [​IMG]



    As simple as it looks took me forever to get it... done with a telephoto at 300mm. In the back a far away light fare gave the right light. Didn't use higher exposure because I wanted the web to be visible.

    The softness/haloing of the moon coupled with the barely discernible web kind of confuse the eye for me. I think if the web stood out a bit more and the moon was either in focus or a lot more blurred it'd make for a stronger shot. Really nice idea

    haha... well, sorry, english is my first language so probably I used the wrong word while explaining about the light source... it is not the moon, it is a street lamp standing somewhere far away. Because of not focusing on the street lamp the light was blurred and that's the reason of the haloing - and the size of it.

    I wonder how would the real moon had been if using it for the light source... probably something similar. I don't think a higher F number would have given me a better "focused" result: the light would have probably been reduced to it's real size, probably for a completely different concept. But perhaps the moon would have been easier to blur out... trying to blur the street lamp I used only gives me "light circles"


    glad you liked it

    Neat idea! I would like to see the moon over a little further to the LH corner, its current placement is a bit odd. Great shot nonetheless!
