    Found this in the yard this morning after the sprinklers had finished, it's a small web maybe 4 inches across that was laying on top of the grass. Thought it was kinda cool so took some shots. I wanted to keep the DOP shallow to better bring the web out, but some parts have suffered because of it :(

    I like this!!!
    As you might know (or not - have you not been here then?), I quite like to try and take photos of droplets, too. So I must find this interesting.
    The grass looks huge, with thick, big leaves! And its reflection in some of the droplet like it were tumbling skyscrapers. Very funny.

    And if the web spanned across the grass in a bow, of course you will get blurred parts where it gets out of the very narrow focus. That is natural and goes with the pic, I think. You could not have pulled it straight!!!

    Thanks, the grass is St. Augustine so it can seem large when it's growing well. I had not thought of the reflections as skyscrapers....an interesting suggestion that I easily see now :)

    I probably could of got more in focus if I shot straight down but that was not really an interesting angle.

    The droplets made me think of the original title I was going to use....
