    I'll tell you later why I'm asking for comment (I want comment unaffected by my question). What I will say is that size reduction hasn't done me any favours. If I print (reasonably sized) the water drops look much better!

    PS Sorry about size - without thinking I did them more or less to my club spec and not the forum spec. Don't really have time to rework them.

    That's true Andrew - but not the question.

    I know it's true because I have pics of the spider also. At least my limited arachnid knowledge makes me think it true!

    Is the question "Why are there larger gaps in the web structure?"...? Or is it a purely photographic question?

    When the radial strands are more than a legspan apart it goes around because it can't reach.

    I prefer the first but feel they both fall somewhere between a full record of the structure and a pretty dewdrop shot.

    Thanks, Andrew. Although, in fact, I was asking Mick whether that was his question - not asking the question myself...!! :D

    Sorry guys - didn't make myself too clear. Despite that Andrew has come close to answering it. I knew about the spider and its web. The picture is a crop from the full frame and I wondered if the crop worked at all.

    It might get hammered (for not showing the whole web) in an NH setting and I'm not sure if it works at the 'pretty picture' level. I think that it doesn't in this reduced form but might as a print because the water drops show better.

    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    As presented, it is judge bait really. Anyone would ask for some of what I call "visual punctuation" for the eye to rest on. The droplets are a bit subliminal. Need the spid, its lunch, leaf, or something.

    Nice pattern, but where's the spider? was my first reaction. Having read the text I feel that this would be more appropriate for the Something I found interesting thread in the Exhibition Lounge.

    The spider would have been in its den somewhere. No self respecting spider would sit out in a wet, dewy, web !!
