Nice dog, and good shot. Peaceful. Interesting chairs in the back, too. Did you add to the fall off? It definitely helps this photo.
Thanks David.
Yes, I added the vignette. I think it works well in this photo, I may have over done it though

Thanks! That spider is called a "daddy long legs", I believe.

Nice! My favorite of those three. Long exposure, right?

Here's a long exposure (30s) using a Pentax-F 50mm F/1.7 with a welding glass filter:

Spider

The spider is a jumping spider. The telling feature is the four eyes on its face, two of which are large. Google or Bing "jumping spider" images and you'll see lots of similar looking ones. There are some 5,000 varieties of jumping spiders around the world. Do a similar search for "daddy long legs" spiders. Their name comes from the fact that they have extremely long legs to go with their tiny bodies.

Evergreen, I believe we are talking about the picture titled "Not a Jumping Spider", and not the one called "Timini The Jumping Spider". As you correctly note, the one called "Timini The Jumping Spider" is indeed a jumping spider, as the name kind of implies. Also as the name implies, "Not a Jumping Spider" is not a jumping spider. And that's the one that, I believe, is a "daddy long legs".

Apologies, Doundounba; sorry for my confusion. The "not a jumping spider" is indeed a daddy long legs, aka harvestman.

Whoa ...a daddy long legs/harvestman!!?? I never imagined they would look that creepy from a magnified perspective and they were everywhere when I lived in S. California...that is what is great about macros, much like microscopes it truly is a window into another dimension.

The other night this guy came wandering into the kitchen while my wife was cooking and I was upstairs. Needless to say my wife's very enthusiastic shouting alerted me to this situation and I ran downstairs to apprehend the offending invader . Its a "southern house spider" and although they are quite large (this one was about 5cm) they are harmless and rather shy...but try telling that to a startled and freaked out wife. She also didn't buy that perhaps he came in to investigate what was smelling so good







Regarding the 15mm, indeed it is a long exposure...20 seconds if I remember correctly and thanks btw. Here are a few from Wheedon Island Preserve...its pretty much all mangroves there.

15mm




70mm

Egads! I would never take a 1:1 shot of that with a 35mm lens! Is that what you used? I guess you only need about 1:2 to fit it all on the sensor, but where's that 180mm macro when you need it?!

A test shot with my newly acquired FA77 and another with the DA15. A stormy dark day it was.

Birding with the k-01, not much available light so the fact that I can use a high ISO on this camera is a refreshing option.

Haha...no not the 35mm as you mentioned you have to get right up on anything with that lens and the container the spider was in was too deep anyways. I had to quickly slap on the 100mm due to my wife's incessant pleas to take get that thing out of here
