Ok, here is something a little different! I spotted this cobweb in the corner of a room in my house, and tried some creative lighting, let me know what you think!
Cheers!

Love the lighting... However the subject is to small... The black over takes it... Only small amount of cropping would make it good... I love the lighting though. How did you get it like that?

Hey Pod, grab a duster m8 not yer camera :wink:

I see too much dark. It might have been more interesting if it had been shapped eliptical with the black fading out to white?

Ok guys, yeh it was the lighting which i liked in this shot, for the lighting i just used a magalite torch, which was a bit flat, which made for not such harsh lighting! Anyway here is a cropped version and a one with white around the edge just for Yosser2K!

I liked the first one after the crop... Not a fan of the white edges... Mybe a little to much white in the shot. This is a hard shot to get right... Reason why is the fact that there is A LOT of black and little white... But if you put more white (like you did for YosserY2K) it over power the actual subject... I think that a good thing to do here is put a white logo like a signature or maybe a border... Just a thought. Make sure it will be white to give more white but not to much to where it over power the subject...

If you don't understand what I am saying please tell because it was hard to explain what I was thinking. Hehe. :lol:
