About this photo

This photo was taken by WikiArquitectura - Architecture of the World on 2018:12:21 11:25:44. The image has been post-processed using Adobe Lightroom CC 2.0.2 (Windows), 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 PowerShot G9 X Mark II by Canon, with a shutter speed of 1/1250, a focal distance of 10200/1000 and an IOS of 125.

Image quaility

A shutter speed of 1/1250 means the sensor was exposed for 0.0008 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 125 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.
