How to grep similar lines in bash?

I'm scripting the creation of an exif text file, with info from images. The problem is, I need to collect date info from very similar lines. See below:

bruno@frank:~/D70s/20051202$ cat eteste
File Modification Date/Time : 2005:11:25 23:09:40
Date/Time Of Last Modification : 2005:11:25 22:09:38
Date/Time Of Digitization : 2005:11:25 22:09:38
Shooting Date/Time : 2005:11:25 22:09:38
Shooting Date/Time : 2005:11:25 22:09:38.10

How do I pick the last line, which has fractions of seconds info?
