    Adrian, what is the common name for that spider? I have often walked into them and their webs in the bush and scared myself sh1tless.

    I think the golden orb is Austrailian, but this is deffinately from the same family. I took some nice pics of them at Thangami near Vryheid, KZN.

    From that it appears as if the Golden Orb is not only Australian! My mistake. Thanks for the info Angeline. I find these things fascinating, goggas, snakes and creepy crawlies that is.

    Now my next one. I took this at Thangami resort near Vryheid, KZN. I never know where to put the sun. I've seen a couple in the centre, but it just doesn't look right to me.

    No, iinm, one of the rules of landscape photography is that you should try and position the horizon so that the sky forms the majority of the image, and another one is that the horizon shouldn't cut the image into two halves.

    You've actually applied the rule of thirds very successfully in this shot, even though your main focal point is exactly in the centre of the image, because the horizon is as near as dammit to two thirds down from the top. For a more "arty" shot you could've put the tree in the one corner, capturing only part of it, or from further away you could've captured the whole tree positioned one third away from one of the corners, but I like this one. It's crisp and clear, and I love that sky! To be honest, if I'd taken this photo I'd have posted it in one of the forums at www.dpreview.com.

    Thank you, Ratsalad, but the horizon isn't level, or equally curved on both sides, on that one. I've only taken a couple so far, but it's actually quite a good substitute for a wide-angle lens, just takes a bit more time!

    I like your pics Ostilion

    Are there different categories of photos? If there is pardon my terminology. I like to break them down into Information photos and Artistic photos.

    7915 is a good example of an artistic photo. I would have liked the focus to be much sharper. You're working with very high contrasts and that is shown much better with sharp edges.

    7916 is another one. Here I would have set the focus nearer and allow the focus to "wane" into the distance, if that makes sense.

    On the other photos your main object is too centred. An offset would have given it a beter touch. 5 fully grown males and only 1 female. First time I've seen that.

    ANY IDEA WHAT CAR THAT WAS

    Where are the guys who REALLY know about photos......
