St. Louis Art Museum at Night

Leaving the St. Louis Art Museum at dusk last evening, the sky was absolutely crystal clear and lighting on the statue of St. Louis spectacular.  This monochrome was processed in Nik Silver Efex Pro using a custom blue/sepia split tone.

This is the color version, pretty much straight out of the Nikon D700 set to auto white balance.  The color is accurate, which is to say, this is how the scene looked to me.  The sky is amazing, but, as Susan pointed out, it really over powers the subject.
