Visiting St. Louis and what trip would not be complete without a trip here. I was amazed. As soon as I shot it I thought of the challenge. What a happy coincidence. Cropped, USM and resized for web.

I love the bird at the top of the arch.

What's the black thing at the top? A bird? Nice shot, but the object detracts from the subject, unless the bird is your subject.

Noticable barrel distortion...oh well, wide angle lenses have pro's and con's!

The bird near the top actually takes away from the overall image.

A couple things.

The bird is distracting. Advanced rules will let you clone things out to improve the pix.

Even though the angle you chose is good, there must of been an even better angle to frame out the buildings, and frame in more of the arch.

OK comp, a bit blown on the right side of arch, buildings and bird distracting, color ok, movement ok,

Many may like the bird there, but I don't. The Arch itself is presented nicely. The very top of a truck(?) is a lesser distraction.
