Museum Steps

This should be a familiar sight to anyone who has visited Philadelphia. This is the view from inside the Philadelphia Museum of Art once you come in through the main entrance.
I tried to convey the sense of size and open space in this image by using the widest possible focal length. Also by using a relatively low shutter speed, I was able to add some motion blur to some of the people in the frame in order to create a more active shot.
On a side note I was really impressed with how the 5D exposed this complex lighting situation (with the numerous dark and different degrees of light areas).

Canon 5D, 24-70 f/2.8L
@24mm, f/3.5, shutter-1/10, ISO-1000
