The blown highlights tend to pull the viewer's eyes away from the main subject...

I agree with with argyle's comment. Middle composition here doesn't work IMO. I would use the darker area to the lower left for the main background for the spider, you'd see the spider better as well.

I agree with both posters above. Perhaps a tighter shot with more Boceh would have improved this image. Focus appears spot on, so kudos on that!

Zoom in closer to spider. Using a flash would make the web pop more. When there is a bright area behind your subject like this one, try to move yourself to get rid of the bright spot. Spider webs are best when the web itself it lit and the background is dark.

Great capture but whilst I like the upper oof highlights, the one front of spider is a little massive and does rather spoil the image.
