    Good shot, I don't think I'd want to get too close to one of those from what I've heard.
    Image does get a bit soft/loose focus to the left of the image. Was this in camera or photoshoped to give the impression of depth? If so I'd suggest reducing the blur a bit.
    Try rotating the image 90 degrees clockwise. I tried it and seems the spider was looking at me giving a much stronger image.
    Just my thoughts,

    Thanks for the comments. The loss of focus towards the left of the image was in camera. This is 2 images combined to get the depth of field you see here. I didnt get a chance to shoot a third which would have brought the legs at the back into focus, he was fed up of me by then;)

    I havent tried rotating it but will give it a go..thanks for the suggestion:thumbsup:
