About the Image(s)

Eeeeek, it’s a spider web! This scene caught my fancy because of the dew drops on the web. The sunlight brought out portions of the web while part of it remained in the shadows. No spider was present. I made this info a monochrome hoping to better show the web and drops. This was a tricky shot as the sun was bright and backlighting the scene. The histogram was a ‘U’ shape with too much brightness and darkness.

Canon R5, f/5.6 ISO = 100, 1/2500, focal length 37mm

Interesting image. The dew drops are pretty, and I really like the moodiness of the background. The bokeh is lovely. I wonder if it would benefit from taking down the brightness of the center a little, and sharpening it some.   Posted: 11/05/2021 07:41:20

I always stop and look at spider webs . I find them fascinating and seeing yours with the dew drops makes it even more so. Maybe fade the bright spots below the web?   Posted: 11/08/2021 05:08:17

Fascinating image. I really like the detail in the spider web, and the detail of the water droplets. Also, the bokeh in the background further enhances the subject of this photo.

Lastly, the composition is unique, but that's what makes this such an interesting shot!
