Spider Photo from the Archives

I'm learning Adobe's Lightroom application so I brought out one of my favorite photos captured right in my front yard in 2011.

My feeling is that it's a little over-processed but the original needed help. It was a flash photo which caused a lot of glare from the hair details. The depth of field is quite shallow so bringing out a bit more detail worked well. There was a prominent haze and very little separation between the color of the background and foreground subject. Atop all that it was a little underexposed making grain in the background a real issue. 8MP photo cropped doesn't leave as much detail as desired.

Over all it's an improvement on the original and better than any attempts so far to make it look nice in Google Photos online editor. Gotta say I'm pleased but I have much to learn too.
