Bolting Horse Cart

Bolting horse buggy, Vinales, Cuba
Camera: Canon EOS 7D | Lens: EF-S15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM | Date: 17-11-2010 22:06 | ISO: 200 | Exp. bias: 0 EV | Exp. Time: 1/50s | Aperture: 8.0 | Focal Length: 53.0mm (~85.9mm) | Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm f3.5-5.6 IS USM

I wanted to use the shot of the old guy with the cigar to illustrate my main post, but this was arguably yesterday’s shot of the day. The buggy had just become trapped on the edge of a building while trying to turn round, and the horse was getting a bit nervous. A passerby freed the buggy, and it shot off like a greyhound out of a trap. Fortunately for once I was quick on the button, and my Canon honoured its sporting roots!

      Hi Tina. Bias is the exposure compensation. If one of my images says “Bias -1EV” it means I set exposure compensation of -1 stop, i.e. told the camera to expose the image less than it would automatically do.
