I believe the above only after overdosing on Nathans Hot Dogs (And fortunately the Betty Ford Clinc cured me of the addiction.

I like the first picture. I like Bynxs alteration, and I think that when you go back with a longer lens you will take some nice pictures that will have little to do directly with the above. Although it will make for a good series...

What if the focus becomes the arches and the light. Darken the photo a bit, increase the contrast so that the floor becomes darker/negative space, you loose some of the details in the walls, but then light and shape become the focus, not details and people. I tried a bit on PS, but ended up overprocessing. May work with your original.
