We have intensively examined the structure of photospheric magnetic fields obtained from the calculation of the polarized radiation transfer for the model atmosphere. To determine more reliable magnetic field in the photospheric region composed of umbra, penumbra and quiet area, we have calculated the polarized radiative transfer for a magnetically sensitive spectral line, FeI 6302.5A, using out composite model representing three kinds of the atmospheric area distinguished by the pixel value of the Stokes I image over the region. Polarization data of the full Stokes parameters, used in this paper had been obtained from the vector magnetograph on Solar Flare Telescope of National Astronomical at Mitaka(MTK) in Japan. According to our investigation on the active region in the photosphere, it has been found that the large current density(=> 8x10^2 A/km^2) and shear angle(=> 85 deg) should be distributed along the magnetic neutral line. To be compared with the results of MTK, our results in transverse magnetic field strength and direction are similar with those of MTK, however our longitudinal field strength at the center of the spot is somewhat (~1000 Gauss) larger than MTK.
