A really good looking photo. BG colours don't bother me and I like them. They all seem pretty dark anyway and add a nice contrast to beads of water. Nice to see such a flat plane on the beads and all in focus. Interesting setting at ISO100.
Only small suggestion would have been a slightly different angle if possible to check big drop away from vertical centre.
Lovely looking web and very apt title for photo.

Chris....I like this photo as is but wonder if toning down the bg colors would be worthwhile so all the attention goes to the web...Nice work!

Hi Christopher. A beautiful bejeweled web and great job getting it all in the plane of focus! The one large drop makes a nice focal point for my eye to keep coming back to. I'm of two minds about the bright background colors - they certainly add punch to the image, but they also distract from the very cool web. This is very well done!

Hi Chris, you did a great job of getting the entire web in focus....I know from experience that this is not that easy to do! I like the BG colors, especially the red....they add some depth to this image. It would have been nice if the big drop wasn't so centered but I can't imagine a different angle or crop on this web so I think you did great overall. Well done! :S3:
