Nice finish, Michelle. Beautifully done.

Excellent work. The b&w works and seems integral -- it doesn't have that "lipstick on a pig" quality that b&w can sometimes have. Congrats on your 87% finish!

HA....I didn't guess this was yours! I should have though by the processing, B&W and DOF LOL. It's a Colorcarnival "signature" piece. Beautiful Michelle! Love it and scored it high! :) Congrats on a higher placement in such a tough challenge.

I'm sure glad you saved one of your best for this :) This is amazing photography, Michelle. I've tried capturing those spider webs and I can't even get them to show up on the picture! I'm in awe!

So beautiful, Michelle! I was seconds before commenting on this when my phone rang, and I never made it back before rollover. So yours was on my screen for a couple of hours. :o) Great score!

This is stellar black and white. Beautiful pattern and light and I like your rather narrow depth of field. Nice photo.

Beautiful delicate composition and lighting. I find myself wondering how this composition would have looked if you had moved over just a bit to align the center of the web with the bright light..in other words, use the bright spot as a compositional element.

Another absolutely captivating that I cannot fault... everything is perfect... I must have gotten up on the the wrong side of bed when voting as I only gave this an 8 in my voting phase... Bumping this to 10 and faving it too.

What a delicate web of dew, I think it's dew at least.

The B&W was DEFINITELY the best choice for your audience to enjoy those tiny diamond raindrops that adorn this spiderweb. My attention is immediately caught by those jeweldrops. Love the detail of the spider's web and the way it sparkles beautifully with those raindrops. This is a beautiful capture of nature.

one of the very best webs that I've seen on here...the little beads are sooooo very detailed!!!

I was thinking at first glance..."oh great...another spider web shot" but, once I'd clicked the thumbnail, it's true beauty showed up...not only in subject capture but, angle, composition and DOF. Nicely done!
