The Arch vs. The East Side

Um...hello! My name is Benjamin Gandhi-Shepard, and aside from being a STL based photographer I also happen to sit next to the Personable Preston Page at work. He showed me this blog site and I begged him for permission to share some (E)STL based photos.
So, here we go. This is a photo that I took several years ago when I used to work in East St. Louis. I've always liked the classic night time shot of STL from the river bank. And I think that image influenced the framing of this shot, however from a couple miles back...and with an ESTL (industrial) foreground/midground.
Canon 20D, Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM, ISO 200, 22mm @ f/9.0 @ 1/125s, handheld. JPEG beatup and cleaned up in Photoshop CS.
Peace
