initial processing in OW finished in PSP and Nik.

The spiders are coming!

Pretty soon they will discover us in our glass house and come crashing in.

That kind of dramatic interpretation is inspired more by the added drama of the first image than by the second.  Which I why I prefer the first.  it is HDR without the things that I usually don't like about HDR : the absence of shadow that creates a disturbing flatness.

The con trail helps this image.  It almost looks like the string of silk along which the spider has descended upon earth to come terrorize us.
