Everything under 1/60 is slow, when you have passed the 47 years, and the hands are shaking ;-)

Just to interfere with all the talk, I thought I'd comment on the shutter speed, ISO, aperture thing.

A shutter speed of 1/50th of a second is fairly slow. Most standard cameras manage up to about 1/500th or 1/1000th, which would be considered a fast shutter speed. An 80 or 100 ISO image would have to be exposed at about that speed at f5 on a sunny day. An overcast day like on the image above offers a lot less light and shutter speeds down to about 1/100th or 1/50th of a second could be expected.

Hi Keld i agree with you, But isent 1/53 a rather quick shutter speed?

Regards Allan.

Ps. anyway its a great picture

Allan. If i do understand it right, the slow shutter speed, compensates for ISO 80 and lets more light pass through. and the f 5 helps too.

Its always a struggle to keep the depth sharpness, where you have to use a rather high f number, and at the same time get light enough.

Excellent picture. I love the reflection in the silver reel pin.

Hi again keld.
I was just thinking about the shutter/exposuretime does it mean 1/53 of a second?
i think my eos 350 would have made a rather dark picture with the iso at 80?
Or am i missing something?

Hi Allan.

Thanks for the nice words !

The picture was taken on a cloudy day, that's why the colours are so natural, and almost no shadows appeared.
