This little guy made a web on my front porch last night (I saw him making it), and I took this shot this morning before going to work. I actually took a lot of shots, but almost all of them were blurry. This one and one other were nice and sharp.

Post processing: crop, convert to black and white, auto levels, levels, dodge darker areas of spider, neat image, resize, unsharp mask, save for web.

The web showed up real well in the picture, but the spider didn't. I don't see too much detail, perhaps because of the backlighting.

Needs color: seems too flat in B/W

i like the backlighting on this spider, it enhances the web and makes this very interesting...

I don't know if the B/W adds to this. there needs to be more contrast for the subject to really pop out at me. Perhaps in color it would've... Still, its a great capture.

7 - Good. A little more detail, even better.

nice shot ... I think there is too much empty space on the right but, that is my taste in composition.

Not a very neat spider but the image is great with this backlight..
