About this photo

This photo was taken by Getty Images on 2005:02:22 16:14:05. The image has been post-processed using Adobe Photoshop 7.0, 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-1D Mark II by Canon, with a shutter speed of 1/200, a focal distance of 16/1 and an IOS of 100.

Image quaility

A shutter speed of 1/200 means the sensor was exposed for 0.005 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.

    DUBAI, UAE - FEBRUARY 22: In preparation for the Dubai Duty Free Men's Open, tennis legend Andre Agassi of the USA and the World's No. 1 Roger Federer of Switzerland, couldn't resist the temptation to have a friendly 'hit' on the world's most unique tennis court, the Helipad of the Burj Al Arab, the world's most luxurious hotel. Standing 321 metres high on a man made island, the majestic Burj Al Arab is without doubt the most recognizable hotel in the world. The hotel's helipad, which is situated 211 metres high covers a surface area of 415 square metres. Roger Federer is the reigning champion of the Dubai Duty Free Men's Open and is making his third appearance in the tournament. For Agassi this is his first time to appear in the ATP tournament where he has already progressed to the second round having beaten Radek Stepanek of the Czech Republic. The pictures were taken on February 22, 2005, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. (Photo by Getty Images)
