Image No. Monarch-1


The above image was captured hand held with the full frame 24.6 megapixel Sony A900 camera, using the Carl Zeiss F2.8 24-70mm lens, with a 70mm focal length, and exposed at 1/400 second at F/13, ISO 800. This image is a crop with an image width of 1326 pixels, which is only 22% of the width of the full-sized image of 6048 pixels. The crop gives a result that is equivalent to taking the image with a 320mm lens. Despite the crop, the image produces a nice 10-inch wide print.

To obtain the best appreciation of the quality of the images on this site, they should be displayed at a relatively small size, because each image has been reduced in size to a maximum width of only 870 pixels, from the original width of at least 4900 pixels (or 6000 pixels from my full frame cameras). In addition, the images have been saved at a low quality setting.
