|It rained all day yesterday so these are natural waterdrops ;-) Took me awhile to find the itsy bitsy spider after I saw the web. I don't generally like to get too close to spiders but when I saw the web that song popped into my head so I had to find the weaver.
Used fill flash since he was backlit and had the 20mm extension tube on.
PP - converted from RAW, cropped, 2nd layer (Gaussian blur, dodged spider, merged in multiply mode), levels, 3rd layer to tone down the red sticks (shifted color balance to teal, erased spider, merged at 20% transparency), tinted some bits of background greener, cloned out some foreground blur on top of stick and a little of stick's shadow, reduced noise, added border, resized, sharpened.
