The woman in the foreground is the focal point.

I like it. It is sharp and clear. I am just not sure of the focal point.

I'm confused. I also can't see anything Jewish about this. Where is it, and what is it a monument to?

Jewish Monument The stone monolith with the bronze statues on it behind the bearded man has a plaque on it. You can see it just behind his head.

This is what it says .

East London was predominantly Jewish at the turn of the last century.

Also... The monument is directly across Whitechapel Road from the Royal London Hospital. There is a large open-air market there and so the monument gets buried in all the hustle and bustle and hardly anyone ever notices it.
