That looks like a big effing spider.
As for the photography part; it's too chaotic and messy although the spider does attract the attention...
the photography is 'chaotic and messy' ? well..not in my opinion.
the photography is carefully approached, and high quality.
the setting is complex. it's a natural environment where a spider lives.
the important thing is not to compromise the nest (it is full of babies)
or to stress out the female into thinking the nest is compromised.
Awesome picture! I like it!
thank you sir!
it looks it, doesn't it! probably only 10-15mm body. but with those
front legs...the alien!
With a shot like this you really need to get in close to isolate your subject from the cluttered background -which should have a shallower depth of field in this case. The main subject of the shot is the spider and web, but it does get lost amidst all the stalks of grass. If you were unable to get any closer when you shot it, perhaps you can zoom in on it in photoshop and then crop it so more of the spider and web show. Its a shame that the one stalk of grass is coming down straight over two of his legs also. With a little work, you might even be able to clone that out in photoshop.
its a natural shot but i do beleive its missing/lacking in something. dont know what it quite is though.
Gives me the willys
