Nice shot!
You can do a lot with that lens. I often hear it referred to as the ultimate portrait lens, but you can get some great macro and landscape shots with it as well. For example:

Thanks Jonathan, also for the links, lots of great photos there, many in difficult light situations, where the f1.4 makes a real difference.

It's one of my favorite walk around lenses. I could easily survive with just this lens and my 50mm f1.2.

It is becoming mine as well, the  D200 is superb at low ISO which is what it was designed for, so quite often the 1.4 aperture makes a huge difference. Since I love arty photos this lens is a perfect match for me, and can out-resolve this camera, in reality it is better than other lenses I have that have better test ratings, so  I will┬átreat test sites with less seriousness from now on!
