LIKED - for me, this is very close to being a really special image, but there a just couple of things that are a distraction to my eye. Firstly, the guy in the high-vis jacket on the left, and second the guy's head in the bottom left both take my eye away from the main subject.

If it were my image, I would crop the left a little to remove the jacket, and clone out the head on the right, and then give it a little counter-clockwise rotation to 'square-up' the bottom. I hope you don't mind the suggestion.

Pentax pour des images riches en détails!

No problem with your comments Phil. Indeed I appreciate them. I did have a go at getting the two "heads" out of the photo without success so far. I didn't fancy the crop due to losing a chunk of the detail. I think the way to do this properly (and I will be going back) is to be the first one in and make a bee line for the centre piece to avoid anybody being in shot. I tried to show how impressive this feature is but I need to work on my techniques I think.
I will go back and have another go though with your thoughts in mind.

Intriguing!
Big effort needed to try top understand it.
Good SF decor!
Now write the film!

Instantly conjured up "2001: A Space Odyssey". Hal, are you listening? Don't be such jerk!
Love the photo and while seeing Phil's points, my take is the "errant" heads lend context and deciphering help for the main event. Like.

My wife is from Leeds, and hopefully on a visit there, I will take in the Armouries.
