Nice capture although I feel that some of the impact of the shot is lost with the B/W. Perhaps if you have taken the picture from a different angle like say from bottom up rather than top down...that may have projected more light on the bottom and left the ambient light on top to "crown" the statues.
i thought the bw actually drew attention to the textures and provided mood. there's really no need to see what colour the statues are. i agree the angle could be improved slightly... tho i'm not sure how. i think from the bottom would be good. not a bad shot the way it is too.
