just the road and us

Uploaded: April 16, 2009


I took this photo just a few days ago in Martha's Vineyard. I was on a bike also going at about the same speed and shot this at 1/25 sec. I increased the contrast and added vignetting; other than that, it is pretty much straight out of the camera.

Exif: F Number: 22, Exposure Bias Value: 0.33, ExposureTime: 1/25 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 100, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 16.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 40D
