The garden is over-run with spiders at the moment, this was a particularly fat specimen.

This is my first attempt at close up photography, it's not as sharp as I would have hoped, but not bad for a compact camera.

Cropped and adjusted the contast in photoshop

Well not bad at all for a first attempt. Plenty of these around at the moment so plenty of opportunity to practice.

You've done extremely (!) well if this is your first macro, I can almost see the brute walking off the screen at me.

Garden spider, (Araneus diadematus) I think. Nice capture, all the detail and sharp enough. Very well produced. I like the little bit of visible web and the hairy legs...that reminds me, job to do, bye!

Amazing detail with the webs showing. Love the background that enhances the view of the spider.

Nice close up - looks great to me because I know how much spider webs move in the slightest of breeze.
