I wonder if it might benefit from a crop to make the figures larger in the frame, making the faces, which are full of character, and a little mystery, more prominent?

Well, I did experiment with making them larger in the frame. I was surprised at how that weakened the photo.

Always view all photos in Gallery or Original Size

That's why I posed it as a question. I wasn't convinced myself, although I hadn't tried  it other than scrolling on my tablet.

Additionally, Zubu's later reference to Herzog, of whom I had no previous knowledge, instigsted a search, and that in turn established your shot perfectly. Overall a very worthwhile experience.
