I'm not a fan of spiders, Gavin - but this is such a fantastic combination of spider and flower bud against a dark background. that I really love it! Beautifully done.

Excellent combination of colors to complement the spider-a rosebud, I assume. Very effective and beautifully detailed. Such a fine work, artistically done.

The crab looks powerful with its pose and stands out really well against the stark dark background. The details on the crab are well captured. Excellent use of the extensions.
