Granite sculpture by Steve Gillman. Originally exhibited in the Richard L. Nelson Gallery in 1986, the sculpture was in the artistís Oakland studio, close to the Cypress Freeway, at the time of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. Several of the stones were knocked over and broken as a result of the earthquake. The remains of the sculpture are now housed at the University of California, Davis

This is a really interesting subject... I'm not familiar with the site, but I find my eyes pulling towards the building, which makes the subject dissappear. If you really like the subject, I'd look around for a place to shoot from that is unique. I might try to see if I can shoot from the window of the building, and possibly at different times of the day.

I really like the notion of a "Stone Poem," and I like the inteplay of shapes, light and shadows. I like that you've positioned yourself so that you have a group of them in one area, and one apart on the left. Intriguing shot.

A shallower DOF may have helped you to reduce the clutter and emphasize the subject. Both the title and the cryptic subject suggest that there's some deeper meaning here, but I can't figure out what it is.
