Wellington: View of cable car from the top of the Wellington Botanic Gardens

Image No. A7R2-Cable-Car-1

Image captured hand-held with the 42 megapixel full frame Sony A7R II camera using the excellent Sony FE 55mm F/1.8 lens. To ensure that the foreground, background and moving cable car were in focus, the exposure was 1/500 second, F/13, ISO 320.

To obtain the best appreciation of the quality of the above image it should be displayed at a relatively small size, because it has been reduced in size to a width of only 870 pixels from its original width of 7952 pixels. In addition, the image has been saved at a low quality setting.
 
Below are three crops from the above image which show the detail that can be seen when the image is viewed in an imaging program at 100% magnification:
