    I am back from vacation and had a wonderful time!!! I am trying to get caught up on everything. I haven't gotten to vacation pictures but am trying to get some done, but just thought I would post this one. I did it the day I did the other web!!!

Nicely done. Did you apply any sharpening? A high-pass filter might make the water beads sparkle a little.

I like the little extra element of green bug caught in the web. But I found myself looking for a better place for it. Anyone else get that impression?

I agree, Stephen, he would be better a little lower and to the left. I don't think it would be too hard to move him.

This is really cool, Beth!

A great abstract image Beth and my favorite color! Love that you filled the frame with it. It has my eyes going wild bouncing back and forth, but that is a good thing...captivating! I agree a high pass filter will give it even more of an impact. :~) Look forward to seeing what you do with the bug.

Oh I like this one. I love the purple color. One of these days I want to get a web with water drops shot! :)

The others have some good suggestions so I'll wait and see what you come up with. :)

Love it, Beth -- very nice and sharp and I think a high pass would really set this off. Let us see what you do with the bug. I really don't think you need it; the web itself and the color takes over anyhow.

Thanks, I had not even noticed the green bug and had looked at this many times. I did two edits, I moved him in one and removed him in the other. I thought I had already applied a high pass filter but did it again. There is something that can be done with a gradient but don't remember how, I think Dale might know that answer.
I got the purple background by using my jacket after focusing the web and shot with a remote. Purple for all of us that like it!

Ok Beth, I think you can safely say that we all like the rich purple. I hadn't originally noticed the bug so either in or out is fine for me.

You did a good job of moving it. With or without it works well.

Awesome! I like without the bug, as it feels like the image is more about the web :)

Thank you everyone! Rita, this was actual dew, I was out very early one foggy morning not too long ago!
