Construction Crane - Clayton, MO

A dozen or so construction cranes peek above the Clayton skyline.  The closed off streets for Art St. Louis provided vantage points not usually accessible.  I keep thinking about Salvador Dali's "Soft Construction with Boiled Beans" for some reason.
Technical: Nikon D700, Nikkor AF 180mm f/2.8 ED-IF, ISO 200, f/8.0 @ 1/1600s, -1.0 stop exposure comp.  RAW file processed in Lightroom 2.  The crane is a bright yellow, which felt too bright for the composition, so I desaturated and worked on brightness.
