Honestly, there is nothing that seems out of place in this piece. It is perfectly executed. When I look at it, I literally think initially that I see a real spider. Then, after seeing that it's photomanipulation, I'm amazed that you were able to replicate water so well. I feel as if you somehow captured a spider literally popping like a water balloon! And then some of your smaller details are just exquisite! The way that each leg has some slight variation from the others is nice. I very much appreciate the implied line for the web. And probably the most well done and important detail in the work is that blue light that slowly creeps in on the top right corner. It's a very nice detail that completely completes the piece! WIthout it the piece would have just been... incomplete. So VERY nice work.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
14 out of 14 deviants thought this was fair.

Well to start off, all i could say was wow... It seems so perfect, so well done with just the right amount of detail.

The colours in the water spider seem to highligh it even more on the dark background, especially in the bottom right corner with the quite defined spash.
The detail is supreme, yet simple at the same time. I love the way the web is done, and the left side of the image seems to flow better, especially the legs.
If i had to note anything that could be a downfall is that it looks like it only has 7 clearly noticeable legs.

All in all, i will finish by saying WOWWWWWWWWW :)
