Uploaded: February 11, 2010


As I was walking around the galleries in this monument I was testing the different options to capture the composition, using light and shadows of the morning.

Exif: F Number: 9, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/200 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 100, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 17.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 7D
