Not enough detail to convince me this is a spider. Minimalism is a good technique, but this may have been too small of an area to fill the frame properly.

I like this original composition on the spider web, the shallow DOF is real nice. This is definately on the subtle side, so I hope it scores as well as it deserves.

Not enough detail in this, moving in closer would help this out

Very interesting shot. Can't really tell what it is. Looks like one of those seed off one of those flowers.

I hope this doesn't get underated, it is one of the most unique views of a spider web I have seen. This grabs the brain and says stop, see me anew. Great shot.
