The King Never Looked Better

Uploaded: February 26, 2008


I waited two years before I could find any potential in this picture. It's amazing what a photo can become once you remove all of the surrounding distractions: excessive light, tree branch, an unappealing ledge, rocks, etc. Worst of all, I'm shooting through a wire fence. Still, I like the final product, and hope you do as well.

Exif: F Number: 5.6, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 10/5000 seconds, Flash: did not fire., White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 200.00 mm, Model: NIKON D50

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.
