Not sure about the green border on V1 but both exceptional captures.

Well, well. Very similar to my yellow bat spider yet on a different continent. Small world. TG

For all those who suffer from arachnophobia pleas look away. Brilliant, the mono certainly made the hairs on my neck stand up.

I think the mono version works surprisingly well and gets the vote over the colour version.

If I liked spiders I like the colours in v2 but v1 looks good too. The loveliest spider of all is the phlatest kind.javascript:;

Hi Fred this is excellent in mono, reminds me of the old horror films in black and white, see you tomorrow on Cardiff West Services about 11.30am depending on traffic, leaving home from Porthcawl 11am.

Regards

Trev.

I prefer the mono too. The green for me looked a little bit artificial. Not sure if you manipulated the colours there a bit (perhaps too much?) but I think the green almost detracts from the spider. The mono really has a gritty punch to it. Nice Wink

You are doing nothing for my arachnaphobia Fred. Much less scary in B & W though. Hitchcock springs to mind. GrinGrin

Well captured.

Nice sharp spider image, Fred, and I am favouring the mono version because there are no background greens to detract from your subject.
