Re: Fairly well-balanced; nice human/statue dichotomy...

I think the humans scattered around the statues gives it an interesting character. The viewers eye jumps from human to statue to human to...around and around. There aren't too many distractions leading my eye out of the scene.

The balance is okay--a bit heavy on the right and sparse on the left. Maybe if you panned slightly rightward to even out the statues and then work the scene with different distributions of people and possibly different focal lengths. Eventually you'd get something perfectly balanced.

The colors of the trees also make it a bit lop-sided. Perhaps a black and white version might work too.

Thank you for explaining what aspects you felt are out of balance. I will certainly try a B/W version. A perfectly balanced photo is desirable, but I'm certain that my wife would have KILLED me on the spot.
