from the 'once there was a spider' series, I loved the color of the background :)

I can't stand spiders; they terrify me, but this is absolutely incredible.  You've shown the majesty of these arachnids well, and even I don't find them frightening at all.  I was struck by how the moonlight glinted off the web; it's gorgeous.  Very nice photo!

hehe, many think it's the moonlike when it is actually just the late evening sun ;) ...i made it look like that on purpose by choosing a custom whitebalance while shooting, giving it those blueish nightlike colors :)

Une photo de nuit ? Aucune retouche pour le faire croire en tout cas je suppose ? Mmmmh, comment avoir alors une photo aussi nette de nuit ? Et la source de lumière derrière le sujet ? L'araignée qui se détache sur la lune toute ronde : super intelligent, créatif et magnifique (bien que ces bêtes-là me fassent peur !). Le bleu et le noir de la nuit se mélange à merveille. Vraiment magnifique !

en fait, pour être honnête, il ne s'agit pas d'une photo de nuit :S ...J'avais pris cette photo le soir, quelques minutes avant le coucher du soleil. Le disque lumnineux que tu peux voire en arrière fond est en fait le soleil. La teinte bleue de l'image a été atteint en faisant la balance des blancs manuellement sur l'apparaeil photo... aucune autre manipulation a été faite :)
J'avais fait toute une serie ce soir, et j'ai découvert qu'en fait la taille du soleil varie en fonction de l'ouverture choisi :)

Haaa, c'est malin alors la balance des blancs car on croirait vraiment une photo de nuit ! Et le bleu ajoute vraiment à l'ambiance un peu froide et calme de la nuit. Très joli !

Merci :) ...oui, le balance des blancs est un des atouts de la photographie digitale (à condition de la mettre manuellement lors de la prise des photos, ou de prendre seulement des images en format raw ou on peut encore la changer ultérieurement)

I was crouching on the ground for an hour trying to get different moods into the pic ...although it would not have thought beforehand that it would be such a popular pic
