Unbelievable...

Uploaded by: Leelee

Berlin,

Caption: ... what a single strand of spider silk can hold! When I took this photo some people stopped to ask what I was photographing. They were amazed as well. I just wish there had been a little bit of sunshine on those leaves but - you can't have everything :)

Thank you very much!

Kathy, you're right, sunlight might have caused too much contrast. But with f2,8 I still needed 800 ISO which produces quite some noise and so reduces sharpness. I'm glad it turned out quite okay, though :)

I have read that spider silk is stronger than steel spun out to the same thickness. This photo clearly demonstrates its strength. Just as well you didn't have more light on the leaves, Andrea, as for me that always makes the contrast too great; I get better results in dimmer light. Good job of clearly capturing the image you wanted to show. 5th 10.

About Leelee

Leelee

I love taking photos - even if I don't put them on my wall or an internet site. I have learned to see much more since I took my camera along with me and every photo trip is a bit like a holiday for the mind.I'm happy if you enjoy my photos - but please don't take them and put them on your own website without asking or without a reference to the photographer or this site. Simple advice: Better get outside and take your own pictures!
