We have dozens of these webs and orb spiders, but I particularly like the angle you chose for this and the way the web is prominent against the dark but not solid background. Gives a definite sense of billowing. The spider on the side is eyecatching! Lynn

Brilliant! Capturing a gorgeous web is one thing (and you've done it perfectly) but with the spider included is even better, imho! Love the wide frame, too!
