About this photo

This photo was taken by Lawrence Jackson on 2011:01:25 21:38:03. The image has been post-processed using Adobe Photoshop CS4 Macintosh, 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 EOS 5D Mark II by Canon, with a shutter speed of 1/5, a focal distance of 15/1 and an IOS of 250.

Image quaility

A shutter speed of 1/5 means the sensor was exposed for 0.2 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 250 means the lightning conditions this photo was taken under were probably quite good, most likely in the outdoors during the day or with the help of a tripod. A low ISO like this usually translates into a good image quality, without "noise" or other kind distortions.
