    couple of things to consider...
    1) temperature/lighting...correct the wb..
    2) ur caption is 3 wise men..but why do u put the focus on the middle man and not the nearer one/further one/ all 3?

    Just getting to familiarize with your camera, it will take some time.
    Basically , this picture is a try out to see that how your camera function.
    It is too early to talk about composition, lighting etc.
    Do shoot some more pictures, but refers to your camera's manual.
    Title here doesn't fit. They are just three deities, representing...Prosperity, Longevity and Wealth.

    I understand your excitement.

    1) Color temperature is too warm, however you will start paying attention to this once you play around with the White Balance settings.

    2) It would be more interesting if you focused on all three or on just one man on the far right or far left. Middle positioning is not as interesting.

    the composition is.. just.. lacking. the background is messy, the oof statues compete with the one in focus for attention, and the dominant cast to top it off, just deals the coup de grace to whatever semblance of composition you have.

    less is more. find a clean background, just shoot the three face on with a moderate aperture (f/5.6). why not?

    You should have the 3 of them in focus, not only one of them.

    I feel that the picture is a tad too reddish, If the main focus is the 3 wise man try to not have any distractions such as the frame behind the statues and the plant at the back. Also try to include more of your subject ( the right most statue got cut off ). Just my thoughts on this =)
