Craning Around 1

Uploaded: February 08, 2008


f/25, 1/40, 18-55mm @28mm, DSC_0019, 4:42P.M., ISO 400
I was finished working at one of my business accounts late one overcast Saturday afternoon and grabbed my camera to check out the neighborhood which was an industrial business district. I soon spotted this red crane on the roadside and being a Saturday, it was idle with nothing to restrict me from poking around. I had just purchased the camera and the settings used were certainly not ideal but I tweaked the images in iPhoto to help them out.

Exif: F Number: 25, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/40 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 400, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 28.00 mm, Model: NIKON D40
