The Collector

By chase
Spider alert !!!
He is use eyeing up that nice juicy fly in the box.

A 3 frame HDR image, combined in Lightroom, faffed with in Photomessaboutshop.

Lit by daylight and a small LED torch.

Yep, it's dark I know but, that's me Wink

Agree about the spider. This doesn't have the overcooked look of HDR which I like, the subject is detailed and interesting (apart from the spider ... did he stay still for the three frame shot ?) and it is a lovely image. Also love it !!!

I like the box contents and the spider, but it looks flat to me. I've done a mod to increase contrast and liven up the box a bit.; not so dark but much livelier I think.
I hope you like it, James

Right okay....what I want to know is how on earth have you gotten hold on one of Mr Fefe's cleaning cloths? Hmm? Hmm?
You have been in our garage for sure....even Boris in the corner looks familiar 🕷😂

Thanks all.
Special thanks toDiane for her UA, appreciated. That cleaning cloth just appeared out of nowhere...honest, I'm claiming the 5th Wink

As far as the spider goes, he attends my special training school on a regular basis, he gives his paw,rolls over and plays dead....eventually Wink

Thanks for the mod James, not quite where I was heading but it is certainly livelier and it's always good to see what other peeps come up with.
