CRAWFORD'S Building Entrance

Which city is known as the Athens of the Midwest?  Why, that would be our own St. Louis.  Architecture students the world over come here to view our town's past glories.  The old Crawford's building is the new home to Art St. Louis.  This photo is a section of the wonderful dome over the entrance, taken in available darkness, lit by orange sodium vapor street light bouncing off the sidewalk.
Technical: Nikon D700, 50mm f1.8D, ISO 1600, f/2.0 @ 1/20s hand held.  RAW file processed in Lightroom 2, using Nikon Camera Neutral calibration and color temp adjustment to 2000K.
