About this photo

This photo was taken by WikiArquitectura - Architecture of the World on 2018:05:13 15:34:41. The image has been post-processed using Microsoft Windows Photo Viewer 6.1.7600.16385, so it's possible that the shapes and/or colors have been modified, although these changes are usually minor and meant to improve the quality of the photo.

The camera used by the author of this photo was Canon IXUS 127 HS by Canon, with a shutter speed of 1/20, a focal distance of 4300/1000 and an IOS of 1000.

Image quaility

A shutter speed of 1/20 means the sensor was exposed for 0.05 seconds, which means the image might be blurry unless it was taken using a tripod. Even if using a tripod it's possible that moving objects, such as cars or people walking are blurry.

An ISO of 1000 means the lightning conditions this photo was taken in were probably poor. This might be a night or interior photo taken without a tripod and therefore it might have quite a lot of "noise", especially if zoomed in to 100%.
