I love the lighting in this image, Balan. As for composition, I think you could stand to take a fair amount off the right as there’s a lot of empty space over there. Maybe come in so there’s about as much space to the right of the tip as there is above it.

One of my favorite subjects, Balan. I agree with @Dennis_Plank about the composition though. I would rather see more details by bring the subject in closer, so the crops he suggested would work for me.

Great catchlight in the spider’s eyes in this one Balan. I love the dark lighting and the vivid red leaf. I agree with the suggestions for cropping from @Dennis_Plank.

Really love this! Those eyes…

Agree with Dennis’s crop suggestion
