About this photo

This photo was taken by Lance Cheung on 2011:09:27 10:22:26. The image has been post-processed using Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw 6.4.1, 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 NIKON D300 by NIKON CORPORATION, with a shutter speed of 1/320, a focal distance of 3000/10 and an IOS of 400.

Image quaility

A shutter speed of 1/320 means the sensor was exposed for 0.003125 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 400 means the lightning conditions when this photo was taken were probably not ideal. This image might have some "noise", particulary if zoomed in to 100%.
