Challenge: Upside Down II (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon PowerShot SD700 IS
Location: My garden. Reykjavík, Iceland.
Date: Aug 5, 2007
Aperture: F/2,8
ISO: Auto
Shutter: 1/160

Shot at 8:36 in the evening. Icelandic daylight. No flash. Macro.

Adjusted levels.
Unsharp mask.
Added border.

The wasp was brutally killed inside my house, with a towel and a window cleaner. Instead of throwing it in the trash we decided to throw it in the spider web outside the window. The spider wrapped the bugger in web in a split second. Turning UPSIDE DOWN on the photo!

Nice macro. But not really up side down, isn't it?

Neat shot but doesn't have upside down feel.

I really like the photo. Good points: Focus, composition, contrast and color. Bad points: ?. I'm just not sure about the 'Upside Down' part.

The background seems to suggest that this wasn't shot upside down, but even if it was such perspective doesn't seem to be a key component of your composition. Yes, I suppose the spider is considered upside down but I'd expect to se his feet up in the air to feel he was upside down, you know?
