This was really hard to get in focus. The web was stretched from a tree to the ground (maybe eight feet below!). So it kept blowing in the breeze. I got others in better focus but not of him actually spinning the web. Oh well.

Not bad...Try a faster shutter speed however...Looks a bit fuzzy

Good shot, the spider seems a little out of focus, i give it a (7)

Very funny :-) Creative title! It also fits to the challenge very good. The focus is a bit strange. I understand the the spider is blurred and that's actually a nice hint that she is busy with her work. But parts of the web (lower left side) have a good focus while other parts like the center of the web or the lower right side are blurred. I would have liked ot much more when the whole web was in fucus. A smaller aperture could have helped. The lighting is very good.

Very nice framing, and I love the title :)

I love pictures of spiders, and although I know the focus is on the "new" web, I think the spider needs to be more in focus. And maybe cropped more closely to the focal point.

too bad it wasn't in focus, but still a good composition.

A little fuzzy on the spider, but a wonderful catch. I don't know how close your cam can go, but it would have been interesting to see the web spinning more closely. Challenge well met. This is a 9. Swash

Captured the web beautifully, but the spider is blurred. Composition is good. Meets challenge? Vaguely.

nice title
08/15/2002 09:47:00 PM
LOL! Cool idea of "web" designer! I give you a 7.
08/15/2002 04:18:00 PM
The composition is great... if the focus were a little better this would be perfect.
08/15/2002 11:38:00 AM
very cool composition. little soft though.

I wanted so badly to score this higher than I did because I really like the composition. I had to take off points mainly because of the focus not being on the spider as the subject. The color of the background is good and compliments well with the color of the spider. The bright spot of the web center in the upper left is a little bit distracting too but may be less so if in focus. Was this shot in your camera's macro mode or not? I kind of get the feeling it wasn't or if it was you may have been out of it's effective macro focus range.
Score: 5

I seem to get new web designers as fast as I can shake a stick at them. Definitely new

Try this on a cold day, as they slow down and help you freeze the motion a bit better.

Great opportuinity for a shot and very well framed. Slight fuzzyness around the spider but nothing worth fretting about.
08/13/2002 10:25:00 PM
excellent 7
08/13/2002 06:46:00 PM
Gets a :) on the wit front and the web has great texture...
08/13/2002 01:41:00 PM
The bluriness of the photo is distracting. The lower portion of the web is in focus, but the upper portion is blurry.
08/13/2002 08:58:00 AM
I can't stand spiders but this is one of my favorite pics so far. Perfectly fits the challenge and I love your composition.
08/13/2002 08:18:00 AM
Bad focus.

Try a little more aperature the next time. You'll get some more sharpness. In that way not only the web is sharp, but also the spider.
08/12/2002 03:02:00 PM
they make it looks so easy...and to think I went to SCHOOL for web design.....hmmm..

Great title! Nice composition. If the spider were more in focus, this would have been awesome! Otherwise, great idea and good job!
08/12/2002 10:19:00 AM
This had SUCH potential, but due to blue/focus problems, I can't give it a high score.
08/12/2002 07:19:00 AM
Great idea, the spider just seems to be out of focus
08/12/2002 01:32:00 AM
Catchy title. This is a really neat photo. Not only is it a new web, it's a new house, and new dining room table, and a new fridge. Congrats and good luck.
