Dew Drops and the Web (V2)

By catzeye  
This was taken in my front yard. I thought it was unique in the fact that it was double web, one almost on top of another. I was trying to capture both as clear and defined as possible.

You give no technical info and that helps others understand what you have done. An interesting natural history record image. Possibly a bit too much looking the same with no compositional focal point, but it is a record in my opinion, so composition does become secondary.

Hello, Cathy, and welcome to EPZ.

A fine capture of the double web, with the droplets sparkling nicely.
I think you achieved your goal and, even though the webs overlap, it is obvious there are two because one is more dense than the other.
It looks like you have a good eye for an image.
Your background is dark, helping the web to stand out well, and is free from distractions, which is important for an image like this. You want all the tiny details to be visible.

Although it is mostly well defined, there are some areas where the webs are a little blurred. The background ones are obviously acceptable, but I would expect the one closest to your lens to be sharp. Stepping back a bit would have helped, or using a smaller aperture. It's possible that there was some movement in the web which could have caused the blur. Without your Exif data (camera settings), it's hard to tell.

In the absence of your Exif data, there isnít enough information in order to make a valid critique. They are not showing up automatically here but you can easily add them manually. Just click on Options under the photo, then select Edit, and open Exif - you can fill in the details and then Save.

Pamela, thank you so much for the information. I am going to post the original which is darker with the EXIF information. When I got the photo on my computer. I just hit auto adjust "levels" to get the look I have here. Of course, I lose the EXIF when I tinker with the photo. Please re-review.
Thanks to everyone for your critique and nice words. I am going to resubmit the original of this photo ( which I probably should have done first) and give all the EXIF info and what I did to the photo which will probably be tomorrow. Thanks to all again
