New recurring article: Picture of the day

Picture of today is actually taken in September 2008 while i was visiting Cologne, Germany to visit the Photokina event. I took this picture of the Cologne Dom (a fancy word for cathedral).

The angel in front of the Dom

CameraCanon EOS 5D
Exposure0.02 sec (1/50) (you don't need faster at this focal length)
Aperturef/8 (b/c with the tokina 19-35, sharpness is only from f/8 down)
Focal Length19 mm (widest i had.would have used 16 and gone closer if i had it)
ISO Speed200 (with the 5D, iso 200 is no sacrifice. Had to go to 200 because f/8)
Exposure Bias-1 EV (picture would have been overexposed at 0 EV, i needed those skies to have texture, not just blank whiteness, also the windows and stone i find are well exposed, but i'm open to critique).
Exposure ProgramAperture priority (it's just how i usually roll).
Date and Time (Original)2008:09:24 14:24:43 (13:24 local time).
