Aperture:f/6.3
Focal Length:55mm
ISO:1600
Shutter:1/13 sec
Camera:NIKON D80

Photographed @ the Louvre, Paris

Set my camera to ISO 1600 and attempted flash-free photographs of the paintings in the Louvre. Got surprisingly good results. Playing around with white balance makes a large difference to the results.

Goes without saying the painters of yore were far far superior to us photographers of today.
