VATICAN CITY. (June 2008). Gracing one of the walls in the Stanza della segnatura (Signature Room), the School of Athens by Raphael is one of the truly magnificent frescoes within the Vatican Museums. The picture's distorted perspective is due to the tilted angle of my camera when taking the shot. The photo also provides an example of what the Olympus E-410 (and its Panasonic four-thirds sensor) can do at high ISO when properly exposed. Original photo properties: Olympus E-410 dSLR, Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm lens at 17mm (34mm, 35mm equivalent), handheld, single autofocus, manual exposure, matrix metering, 1/50s f3.8, ISO 1600, 3597 x 2697 pixels (after crop), RAW.
