A severely cropped version to letterbox proportions to make the figures look bigger in the frame might be better? The subject idea is good but the large framing doesn't - imo -  do it any justice.

I like it a lot but I'm unsure about cropping or not… Stamper's suggestion might be worth trying.

I disagree with Stamper this time. I think the excess space around the figures adds to the eerie mood.

If there was a contrast in tones or vignette then I would agree. The top - at least on my monitor - looks slightly lighter than the bottom but only slightly. Your eye wanders out of the frame without anything to stop it. Cool

This is a very cool image, but placing an isolated subject smack in the middle like that does tend to make the composition too static. I would be inclined to place the group significantly off dead center so that the negative space has more visual authority in counterpoint to the subject.

Me too: I find the composition perfect; a very nice picture.

Very impressive concept. I'd love to see several more scenes there with this minimalistic approach.

Very nice; super clean graphic quality and indistinct figures with recognizeable grouping = fantastic.  Varying tones of figures is also appealing. 

I see this as a decent sized print on a wall somewhere.

Great shot. A wonderful take on the subject with lots of mystery. Placing subjects in the centre is not in itself an issue, but rather is meant as a genral guideline for most new and learning photographers. If it works, it works. And I think this works nicely.
