(Know that I only vote in even numbers.)

A four for you. Nicely composed, focus and exposure is good. I feel the orientation of the spider is wrong. I want to see a spider head, spider eyes and spider teeth. Well, at least something that looks like a head.

eww, a spider.
quick, kill it with fire!

sorry, natural reaction.

again, eww.

technically, well shot, though i can't see any messages in this web
a 7 from me, and that's generous given the fact that since the spider is so clearly detailed i'd like to just skip it

I'm afraid it's a little too literal for me. A good try on a hard one though.5.

4...I wish for more web.

I like the depth of field. I find the brighter line in the background distracting. I'm wondering if it was possible to burn it a bit in processing, or to change your angle when shooting to have avoided that break in the shot.

There's a great Charlotte here. Perhaps the web could have been a tad brighter. A 7 from me.

Every time we get a Garden Orb Spider at our place my daughter names it Charlotte. The focus appears to be nicely on the spider but it doesnítí quite feel sharp enough. The background is a little distracting though it does bring in a domesticated feel. I do like the leading lines of the web. 6

Poor macro picture. Not a very good angle. 4

I don't get it...

Oh wait...now I get it.

The idea is good, but it is just a picture of a spider and its web. Nothing jumps out to me and gives me that wow look at that spider. To make it more interesting to me, I would have found a way to get a different background, and I would have tried to get more detail of the spider itself. Now my lenses aren't great, so maybe I wouldn't have been able to do any better myself, but if I could, that is what I would try.

Gave it a 3

The shot is topical but the reflection across the upper section disrupts the visual impression. 5
10/18/2013 10:30:37 PM
The background is distracting, and it seems a bit of a fair distance from the subject, so it could have easily been blurred out by normal lenses.

Another one. No water drops, but it looks a bit more farm like, and she has a meal.

10/18/2013 12:12:22 AM
It fits (sic) I hate spiders. It won't hurt your score.
10/17/2013 11:19:36 PM
A worthy book for this shot, or vise versa. Looks like it even has a tasty snack! 7

This shot is definitely less suitable for the radiance of the novel. I do not like to see here the rear end of this creature that seems in search of food instead of weaving a marvel for our amazement.
5 for the effort

Decent detail. But just a little plain for my liking. Fitting title, however.
Gave it a 3
10/17/2013 06:42:56 AM
As with the other one with this title,its ok.5.
10/16/2013 09:55:37 PM
Nice crisp detail on the web, and narrow DoF. Wish the background was blurred a little more, but still a well executed image!
10/16/2013 05:27:27 PM
A competent macro shot of a spider, but nothing to hold my interest. 3
