About this photo

This photo was taken by on 2018:12:25 10:09:27. The image has been post-processed using Adobe Lightroom 2.3 (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 EOS M by Canon, with a shutter speed of 1/500, a focal distance of 55/1 and an IOS of 640.

Image quaility

A shutter speed of 1/500 means the sensor was exposed for 0.002 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 640 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%.
