Garden Spider 3

By cambirder
This may look very familiar as I posted a picture of the very same spider (she likes to hang out behind our dustbins) not that long ago. I'm posting this as I have used her to test out my nice new MR-14EX ring flash, which because of very low natural light has provided all the lighting for this shot.

Nice sharp, well composed shot. Out of interest, why use 200iso if you used flash. Why not 100iso? Not a criticism, just curious. Lee. Click.

Thank you for your kind coments. Lee I would have used 100, but I only had a few minutes to do this this evening, as we were going to the theater, and in my haste I left the ISO setting as it was.

Wow! New lens one week then new flash the next!
Excellent advert for the kit and the photographer! Have you thought to show the topside of the spider? Like how the web has also been picked out against the dark background. Click!

Hopefully a top side one will be done for the weekend, but not this one as her web is too close to the fence
