A stunning postcard, Deniz, of an obviously challenging scene, The multiplicity of light sources may mean that we just have to accept that some of them will be overexposed and some will be underexposed, and overall your "average" looks great, but (in the friendly spirit of TE, of course!) allow me to ask -- what could have been done about the overexposure of the bridge in the foreground? And since I'm picking nits (does that phrase translate?), on my monitor I see two patterns in the sky -- a set of wavy lines across the top of the frame that could be clouds, okay -- but then a large spot on the left side that is... what? a lens flare?
You know I respect your work and study your artistry, so please take no offense!

It's good to think about all the things you mention -- but I look at this and see a perfect image! The wide angle was necessary to see the threesome and the tray, and it appears plenty sharp on my monitor. Well done, Craig!

Besides capturing the drama of this piece, I applaud the way you have separated it from its background, and your ability to preserve the sculptor's fine details. It is not always easy to photograph sculpture -- you have done wonderfully here!
As a nit to be picked, allow me to ask -- is there something to the left of the wounded soldiers head, or above Nurse Charity's head, that you have cropped out? I might have been tempted to leave some space in both places. But this is just a minor difference in approach and not a criticism in any way!
