    I took these two obviously in my white box. The smaller one of the two throws hair which apparantly I am allergic too :confused: so these shots cost me 3 days of lots of itchy red bumps..

    *****Edited***** after finding the white balance dropper in PSE I was able to correct it

    Spider looks great but yeah, not enough light on the background for the cat. Not much you could do, he/she is too far back really. You can fix it in post though:

    Also a 4:5 crop.

    Just brightened it up with Viveza 2. Looking at it again, I did a pretty bad job, sorry..

    EDIT: here, this is a bit better.

    that little chunk of mulch or whatever on the spiders bum is distracting to me.

    i dont know much about spiders, but the "hair throwing" it does is a defense mechanism. they shot a bunch of hairs out when they feel threatened, and the hairs are little barbs (not sure if they have poison or not). they are meant to go into the nose, eyes, and mouth of the predator and cause irritation to mucous membrane.

    saw that on discovery i did. :D

    diggin the edit rob! well done.

    Yes you are right it is a defense mechanism. Im too chicken to handle them I let my husband do that lol. I just took the pictures but when the hair started flying I was about 4 foot away and they still got me, Still scratching though :grumpy:

    ugh! that sounds like the opposite of fun.
    they have some range with those hairs huh?
    are they poisonous or are they just sharp and irritating?

    They are not poisenous just irritating, they are like barbs they totally dig in and the more you scratch the worse it gets.

    Ok so I totally learned something new today, Photophop elements has a raw program that will set the white balance automatically. its a dropper icon in the raw program. I cant believe I never knew this.


    heres another edit of a different shot
