Lynx Spider taken over the weekend in my backyard in Brisbane - perched on a hibiscus bulb.

Taken with a 400D + 100mm Macro lens. Used a 580EXII and a Lumiquest softbox to light it set at 1/8 power from memory ... trying for some more subtle lighting. C & C welcomed.

A bit too dark, but it does make it look dramatic.

Thanks for the feedback all.

Dave - yeah - when I first loaded it into Lightroom I had a play with the exposure but I thought that brightening it took away from the image and made the image background looked pushed. Therefore I reset the exposure to the original out of camera and left it at that. I should point out that it was overcast with some dark storm clouds approaching (last Sat afternoon) and I was only using the flash at around 1/8 power.

Although it is on the darker side, I think it adds to it. Great capture.

I think some people might see this a little underexposed or too dark (as seen above I guess haha), but I really think that is what makes this one pop and brings the focus right to the spider. Great image!
