Handheld semimacro shot in my backyard. It was a really dull overcast day, and I couldn't get the shutterspeed quick enough handheld with a smaller apperture, hence the wide-open apperture, high ISO and very small DoF. It doesn't look quite as noisy in the larger size.
Any C&C more than welcome.

This shot isn't so sharp of course, but I like the way the web is in focus at the edges like that. It sorta looks like you have used a T/S lens here, or played with it in Focal Point software to get the three seperate focus regions.

When you had your eyes on the spiders...were the snakes down below in the grass watching you? Smile

Thanks Kev. No Snakes -- well at least none I could see --
This is pretty much as the shot looked out of camera, except for some crop and rotation to get the in-focus web strands right into the corners. So no focus stacking or pseudo tilt shift. I think it's purely a result of the angle of the web, DoF and the flash.
I quite like the look of this more than the others in the set and I'll be attempting to repeat something like it with tripod and correct setup next time.
