Making it Big - Magnifying Subjects: Satisfying or Irritating?

I've gravitated back and forth on this subject - is bigger always better? or should we aim for better composition and magnify only when it serves a purpose?

The key problem i think, is that once u magnify, the scope for composition is drastically reduced and the technical complexities  increases greatly as well - shallow DOF, more light needed to light up the subject, tripod... 

Oh nevermind... Its still fun to do once in awhile when the right subject comes along :)

~2x magnification. 



it works better on a housefly than a lynx spider though...
