In order to appreciate viewing this scene the way I ultimately want it to be viewed, it will need to be a wall sized enlargement. That will mean capturing this scene with either a medium format camera, or a mega pixel DSLR monster like a D3x. But until a ton of money falls down from the sky, I'll have to make due with what I've got.
Compositionally speaking, for this shot to work I need an interesting collection of people on the far right, some more people on the steps in the center, and some more people off on the far left (by the waterline below that building). I always manage to get one or two of the three spots filled with people at the same time, but rarely all three, even after staying there for several hours. But it's a nice way to spend a beautiful afternoon, plus it's a great way to meet new people as whenever I setup my equipment on a tripod for a lengthy amount of time, people always stop by to chat.
