Agave glow

Uploaded: December 03, 2010


f4.8, 1/320th sec., ISO 400. Taken in San Diego, CA 28 November 2010. The agave plant, at least this particular species has a very unique looking bloom that hummingbirds love. The colors are amazing. Very little editing in PSCS3 other than sharpening and just a touch of color boost.

Exif: F Number: 8, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/80 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 400, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 300.00 mm, Model: NIKON D300

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
