Nice capture, lovely setup. I think the lighting could be a bit better, maybe if the spider was more highlighted, I don't know, just looks a tad flat. But, still, well done =).

hey Ann: Congratulations on your 7th placing. This is virtually unreal because it is virtually clear edge to edge. The water droplets, beads so tiny, yet with their own weight is unable to destroy the web, yes it may loose a contact here and there, but look at it. This stands out as one of your most interesting shots because your image draws an intricate pattern which pleases the eyes over and over. Your port is very nice and this addition enhances it more.

Yes, nature does provide the simplest and the most complex and with untold variation. Bumping up on great craftmanship and artistry in composition.

Excellent shot taken at the right time of day to really catch the complexity of the web. My only suggestion might be to tweak the color and contrast a bit. There were a lot of spiderwebs in this challenge, but this was one of the best. Good luck in the challenge!
