On most visits to the St. Louis Art Museum, I try to get a different take on this city landmark. This shot is a compositional departure for me. I usually frame for the golden ratio, but I worked this one out with triangles fitted to the golden mean. I was shooting directly into the sun here, but the Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 G exhibits no lens flare or noticeable loss of contrast. My only complaint is that auto-focus is sluggish and barrel distortion is very pronounced.
