    These were taken a couple of years ago when I was learning to use my Canon A540.

    The fly was on the patio door and the spider was outdoors at night.

    Here's on from today a touch more open, I like this style much more and think it's a step towards yours and Rooz' style. I think I have to open it up a little more and increase my SS to move away from dark backgrounds. I still like it though.
    Very nice shot. The DOF is great.

    My backgrounds are not only brighter due to faster shutter and apperture, but also due to PP; I often use a bit of shadow compensation in Capture NX, to make the background a bit brighter. This does induce some noise so sometimes I run the image through Neatimage as well.

    Dennis, that's a beautiful shot, as always. I love the colors and clarity you get in your shots. You're pulling amazing stuff out of your "unconventional" lenses!

    Thanks a lot for the comments, Tori and Adam

    Here are some more pictures. This fly was easy to shoot, because it kept on the same location for a long time.
