*f 13 *Shutter Speed 1/80 *ISO 6400

I found this was the best exposure for this particular image with a dark background.

The metered exposure was too light and if i went any higher, the black started to look grey as it was too over exposed.

The picture was too dark otherwise and if i went up any higher, the image would be overexposed (too much light ).
