  #66 In the shadows

The hunter hides in the shadows...       ©2009 dodrizzt
Panasonic DMC-FZ50       14th place, 21 points
1/10s, f3.6, ISO 100, 111mm, Normal Program, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Crop, painted with light, resize, USM       Extra Info: ... and will try to catch you, little fly... beware!!!

This idea hit my mind when I was thinking of something "hiding in the shadows...". It wasn't too difficult to find my "model" after searching in an old, rusty place... but she was very shy!! I had to come back in three different days to get the pic, as she almost inmediately hides in a hole when notices any little strike on the metallic surroundings... and I had to lay my hand on the metallic surface, as the place was very narrow and I also had to shoot above my head with my arms extended, as she was standing very high. I'm happy with this difficult capture, manual focus, spot metering and slow shutter speed, all handheld. Hope you like it :-)

    Thanks for the extra info. Is she poisonous as well? With the spider veiled by the web, my eyes keep drifting to the sharp colourful rusty metal.

    Hi Billy - LOL! I start to recognize your pictures because of the Extra Info and the smileys.
Great idea! Very well executed. ípuaj! What a cool and frightening shot!
I tried to take some spiderweb shots for a friend and I really know what a great job you have done here.

    I fine overhead shot worthy of some further aggressive cropping to ensure attention is isolated on the spider and web.
