Hi all. A few pics I would appreciate any kind of feedback on, positive or negative. Used a Tokina 100mm macro lens and the light off my mobile. Don't know much about processing in elements but just adjusted things until I liked the outcome. I am new to this so things can only get better.

I really liked those shots, they're awesome. That's really good for a beginner, in my opinion :)

Thanks Pierovera. I hope the fact the subject is of the 8 legged kind doesn't put too many people off.

Well in real life they're a bit scary for me, but I just love to see macros of these little buddies! :D

Those are some hairy little bastards! I like the second shot a lot, the webbing looks really cool in it. I don't know much about the processing side of it either, I just adjust until I like how the picture looks. What is that first spider walking on?

Hi Adam, Its on a small MDF stool I use for sitting on when I am polishing my car. There must be something about my car wing mirrors they like because everyday one is hanging on for dear life on my way to work.

They look great - personally, I like the second one the most.
