One of my first shots with the new Tamron 90mm Macro lens. I'm still getting used to macro shooting so any critique would be welcome. Settings provided.

You've captured this tiny little spider brilliantly!! Though the details are so good it almost looks like a tarantula! I love its colours!
The spider is a little dark, but a few tweaks in a post processing would soon lift the shadows.
Well dne, they are so tiny and jump at the speed of lightning (or it seems).
You should noit be using such a high ISO for macro. One of the requirements is ultimate quality and ISO1600, even with modern equipment, will struggle.
OK, there are times when you might need such settings to get an image at all, but you should plan to avoid them. You are a touch under exposed here and the background is rather grey. Was it grey, or should it be white?
Quite sharp though with decent depth of field.
Cute little fellow.
Underexposed as you know, and looks better with that fixed and some noise reduced.
It was poor light, I think these spiders are more active later in the evening, as your time shows.
Enjoy the lens, - I also have one, the VC model, its very nice.
The wall should be white, it was dark as I was putting in the shadow. This was climbing around behind me as I was ironing and I couldn't resist the temptation of shooting. As regards ISO, I shot it up to compensate for the low lighting. The room only has one CFL and I have as yet not bought a ring-flash for lighting up these buggers.
Aside of the lighting issue, I'm happy the image was appreciated. These spiders are indeed fast buggers and I enjoyed chasing it around to shoot photos. Looking forward to some bigger creatures now to focus on details. This is at 1:1 if I remember well. It was a small one!
