    i like them all! maybe the fall colors is my favorite – it exudes a warmth. 🙂

  2. I’m so glad that you posted all these different edits! Each one is really wonderful! (That’s an issue with me…choosing which edit I’m going to stick with. ) I love spider web photos, anyway, and I don’t think I’ve ever successfully captured one. You have a gem here.

    Spectacular edits!!!! Each one is so compelling. Love how you have made the photos abstract while retaining the realism of the web. So happy you shared your artwork with PAF, Pat.

  12. Oh the webs we weave said the spider. Glorious creations, captured beautifully. Margie

  13. Jim says:

    Amazing original and effects, Pat! Like the rich colours of the ‘fall’ one.

  14. such inspiration Pat…I needed this!

  15. This is fantastic, Pat!! I have been walking into so many webbies lately with all the rains we’ve had. I normally love to look at them, but there are too many out there to SEE first!! I always think, “oh no!! I have ruined this!!” but they seem to get things repaired darn quick, so mayBE they should have spiders at FEMA?! Lovely variations… I especially like the fall colours one, perhaps BEcause I miss those colours living here in the land of always green Florida.

    Wow! Very beautiful. The Photoshop edittied photos are perfect.

  28. Oh my gosh. What a beautiful picture that spider web makes. I love how the drops of water form on it.

  29. I forgot to tell you, I am commenting from my other blog. I also write the blog Are We There Yet!. I have a wordpress account for My Journey With Candida and don’t know how to change it to that.

    By they way, I think the spider web looks bejewled!

    I’ve always been somewhat fearful of spiders, but I do love the beautiful webs the orb spiders weave. They are just amazing. And, these photos are amazing!

  33. Fergiemoto says:

    Captured beautifully! It’s amazing how rain can make many things look like gems.
    Really nice, Pat!

  34. A.M.B. says:

    Wow! I’ve never stopped to think about how beautiful a spider’s webb really is. We found an orb weaver for the very first time in our house yesterday. I was relieved to learn they aren’t poisonous!

  35. Miriam says:

    simply stunning, I am going to look at them all again.

  36. I’ve been seeing lots of spider webs on the blogs I visit of late. But, these are by far the best of the lot. Simply fantastic shots. The water really sets them off.

  37. Fantastic! I love spider webs. (Not spiders unless they’re big enough to see and know where they are at all times.)
