I hate spiders...but this web was so pretty so I played with it to try and get a photo, it was hard because it was above me and the background was either the sky or bright green leaves. I wasn't planning on entering this challenge but when I cam ehome for the weekend and two huge spiders had created webs, well what more could I ask for?

Beautiful shot. Wonder why it wasn't voted higher.

This is gorgeous. My favorite of the spiderwebs. I would use something like this as a background for other projects. 10

One of my top three and certainly my favourite out of the various excellent spider web entries. I expected to like one of the more complete webs more, one of those where the centre of the web was carefully positioned off-centre within the frame and droplets caught the light. But this assymetrical one appealed more. I like the loose composition, the texture of light and shade in the background and the high contrast black and white treatment. Lovely!

I Think it would have been more effective to crop off the right half of the photo.
