If you get it right you win the right to be smug!!!

So what ISO is this taken at. That is all the info for now. If you are feeling clever you might want to guess other details of the shot.

Full scene (exciting isn't it LOL).



Crop 1



Crop 2

Hello Mark,


Good idea, I enjoy participating in a post like this.


Since you haven't provided any clues at this point other than the pictures I am going to take a guess and say ISO 1600.


Actually this isn't a complete guess. I think I do have a few facts, and also a few assumptions, other than the pictures, that led me to this answer.


I am looking forward to hearing from some of the other members.

I'll guess 6400 or 12,800.

So, what camera were you using? Is the shot straight from the camera, or has it had levels adjusted? It is possible the picture could have been taken at any ISO setting between 200 and 3200, depending on the camera.

I'd guess a DSLR due to the shallow depth of field. Quite a bit of noise so probably high ISO so 1600.

Since the 100% crops are approximately 8X magnifications of the entire image, and they are 749x499, that would give the original a resolution of about 6000 x 4000. Since you shoot Canon, that could only mean either the 1Ds Mark III or the 5D Mark II. Since the 1Ds Mark III only goes to ISO 3200, I don't think you'd be making a big deal out of that.

So I'm going to guess that you're showing off your new 5D Mark II, and this was shot at its maximumISO setting of 25600.

The shot looks to be taken in the shade, so an experienced photographer would have set their camera to ISO400.

Judging b the sky it might have been late in the day so an experienced photographer might have set ISO800.

However I guess you would have gone for a little better quality - I will guess ISO400.

I'm impressed all and I like the theory's that some of you are employing but I'm saying nothing for now at least. I might give the answer before I go to bed in about 7 hours so if anyone else wants to have a bash then please jump in. The more I think about this the more I wouldn't like to be the one guessing :blah:

Cruel.

I like you. You're devious.

I trust you'll be providing the full EXIF data as well.
