The Fabulous Fox Theater

This shot of the Fox Theater is the last picture I made with the legendary Nikon D700, snapped during the Grand Center Art Walk.  The camera is on its way to an eBay buyer, replaced by a Nikon D800.  Introduced in 2008, using the same FX sensor as the Nikon D3, the D700 rapidly became a game changer as the first affordable full frame DSLR.

This blue/sepia split tone version was created in Nik Silver Efex Pro 2.

Camera: Nikon D700
Lens: AF-S Nikon 50mm f/1.4G
Exposure: ISO 800 @ f/4.0 @ 1/60s Auto WB, hand held while walking.
