The rare aligning of stars – in this case the milky way – some luminescent plankton, and a skilled photographer who knows how to hunt a good picture combined to make what must be a strong contender for best photograph of 2014, so far. Taken on June 27th by Fefo Bouvier the shot info should grab Canon’s attention, as this picture makes a compelling reason to go purchase a EOS 60d.
According to EPOD Bouvier took the photo with the following settings:
Photo details: Camera Model: Canon EOS 60D; Lens: EF-S18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS; Focal Length: 18mm; Aperture: f/3.5; Exposure Time: 15.000 s; ISO equiv: 6400; Software: Adobe Photoshop CS5.1 Macintosh.
Not the best camera in the world, but a look at Bouvier’s website shows it’s not the camera that matters. While powerful cameras can make some amazing photos so it seems can the right photographer on a middling model. Originally posted on PetaPixel it’s impossible to argue when they say:
Some photographs are so good it’s hard to believe they’re real.
Do you know of better photos?
