    This one is the bomb; reminiscent of a great John Shaw film-image (with a gray background) that was a cover of Natural History magazine. I'd love too see a version with a bit mroe contrast. Too bad it was so windy!

    Another gem John, delightful image, nothing wrong with the composition but I think I preferred the previous cobweb.

    I am asking because I am envious:- is this genuine dew or have we been doing a little spraying?

    Another beautiful gem. Love the water drops. Looks like there was rain before. Blurry background and the sharply in-focus drops make this image. These are almost a matter of luck as uncluttered backgrounds are rare. Very well done. Yes, a slightly darker background can bring some contrast.

    Beautiful Image. Love the Dew on the Spiders Web. Too bad I haven't seen such situation in Utah ( Very Dry State)
    Agree with the other comment - Darker Background.
