About this photo

This photo was taken by on 2011:03:09 02:05:54. The image has been post-processed using K-5 Ver 1.02, 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.

Image quaility

A shutter speed of 1/250 means the sensor was exposed for 0.004 seconds. This is a low enough value to guaranty that the image is probably sharp, even if captured without a tripod or if it has moving objects in it.

An ISO of 100 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.
