At first I thought this was by Salvador Dali. It is an excellent photo. I appreciate that you label your photos! Thank you.

Great, the light was perfect. I shot the same spider but with a different composition, it's in my urban gallerie.

Same spider by same author in my native city of Bilbao at the Guggenheim Museum. You can see it under my gallery. Regards.

Love that shot!

A prize winning shot. I see you got everything going for it--golden hour lighting; shadows leading to the art gallery; composition balanced. Just marvellous.

Excellent perspective and lighting, I'm sure I saw one of these in Copenhagen a couple of years ago.

An expensive addition to our national gallery. Well shot.

Excellent shot and sculpture. Love the positioning.

Strangely enough, I posted a Louise Bourgeois spider today, but it is merely titled "Spider" in our Sculpture Garden in New Orleans City Park. You have shown the details very well and it looks as though it is attacking the town.

Interesting piece of art. Certainly a nice perspective, and I like the lighting and shadows too.

I saw this - or one very like it - at the Tate Gallery in London. I think it's stunning. Not easy to photograph but I love your shot.

Compelling image
