5 - Attucks Theater

From 365 Project
The Attucks Theatre was built in 1919 and was designed by black architect Harvey N. Johnson. The theatre was named in honor of Crispus Attucks, an African American who the first to die in the Revolutionary War. In its heyday it hosted famous performers such as Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, Mamie Smith, Nat King Cole, and Redd Foxx. This is my first attempt at a "blended exposure" photograph. This picture is a combination of three images exposed at -2, 0 and +2 stops. Taken with a Canon G10, f3.2, 1.0s (tripod), ISO 80, 50mm equivalent. Post processed with Photomatrix Pro 3.1.
