Douglas, this is an awesome shot. Very distinctive. #545995

Before I read your description, I thought to myself he must have shot this in zero gravity because the water droplets are facing up.

Beautifully executed and I also like the fact that you flipped the image to make it that more interesting. Your extremely shallow DOF really sets the web off from the background.
