I do love the little rainbow going through it, cool.

Some say arachnids DNMC. I am not one of them.

Good luck in the challenge!

The lighting is cool, I'm having trouble either because its just a little OOF or the subject in frame is too small.
01/31/2006 04:25:42 PM
The backlight and rainbow are nice touches.

Love the rainbow

Nice photo, but I don't think it fits the category of "non-domesticated mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians"

Out of focus, if you're going to use backlighting, the silhouette needs to be sharper.

The focus on the spider seems off. I think a tighter aperture might have worked wonders, here.

webs are stunning arent they? The rainbow adds nicely

This does not meet the challenge criteria: "wildlife" should be considered non-domesticated mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians ..."

I would have liked to have seen more of the web. It seems lost in the sunlight.

love the rainbow - the fragility of the web is captured nicely.

Interesting photo, but not, "a mammal, bird reptile or amphibian."....2
01/26/2006 01:43:15 PM
too much "backlighting" and not enough from camera's side IMO
01/26/2006 11:43:51 AM
Wonderful idea, but the execution could have been better. The focus doesn't look quite right, and perhaps a different angle would have brought out the web a bit more. A fill flash would have shown more detail, too, I think.

One hint I read is to spray sugar water onto the web...... supposedly it makes the water drops sit there ever so nicely.

Nice rainbow!

Interesting rainbow effects on the webbing. Something about the picture doesn't look right. To dark at the bottom and too light at the top?
01/25/2006 02:42:41 PM
Not wildlife as defined by criteria. Would've been a great backlighting entry. Nice use of the light from the sun in the background to highlight the web...it also gives a nice flare (rainbow).

I like the bit of sparkle from the web and the rainbow. The spider gets a bit lost in this large expanse of mostly empty space.
01/25/2006 10:58:46 AM
Got to say this is a cool shot
