nice shot, but a very small image, or a very tight crop (and a bit too strong the sharpen, for my taste). but lovely composition and colors.

Fantastic image, love the tension on the spider web. The only critique for me is the in focus stems above the berry. Well captured.

What an interesting close up. It would have been nice if you could have filled the frame with the berry/spider. You don't mention lens, and most lenses, even when they say 'macro' - will not get very close.

True macro lenses cost a lot and need careful handling, but if you like macro, you need one.

Hello, Alexander. Yes, very lucky, and very effective. The raindrop, berry and spider stand out beautifully from the background. I have done a modification where I cropped the left so that the subject wasn't so central, then softened the background because there is quite a bit of noise in it. In the process, the web became soft as well, so if you want to do this on your original, the web would need to be isolated.
