Default Spiders web

Hi Everyone,
I took this the other morning. the first is as it was the second is Pshoped, Blur, Saturation.
What do you think please?
Is it all to busy? does the plant on the right detract some.
I was trying to make more contrast on the web so it stands out from the grass but it just ended up looking like super white like it was drawn on, and where I had gone over the web with the contrast tool it made the areas around the web look sharp and pixel like when viewed up close.
I like it but it might be rubbish, Let me know what you think please.
( it's too like my last pic, I gota get out more)
Regards Mark

This is one where you take a spray bottle of warm water to spray yhe web before taking the shots so it sparkles with water droplets which is very good for webs out side the ones inside we do not spray! Great shots though!

Great shots, the first and third are my favorite. I don't like the out of focus of the second on that much. But great shots none the less.
