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!

I'm laughing at your write-up, waiting for no one to be in the frame (and I have been there, over and over!) because I have just read a piece of advice that I now think is a pretty good thought: "Backgrounds are very important; if you find a good background just sit and wait and pretty soon someone will walk into it." (from a La Paz friend who teaches, Tom Ireton)
This shot without the woman is an architectural postcard; with her, it is a human drama!

The perfect New York poster! :-)
I've been away from TE for so long that I can't tell if you are not showing us the EXIF data or if I just am not looking in the right place, but I'd love to know the lens you used. I'm guessing it was a moderately long tele, but I'm not sure!

As usual, Gunnar, your foto is perfect in every way!
That did not stop me from downloading it and playing with it -- trying to add more contrast to the mountains and clouds -- but in the end, your version was always superior!
