Can I Get an Opinion??

OK---lately I've been going thru my artwork---and this has gnawed at me from the time I varnished it.

Many artists over time have had a go at this subject matter---and I wanted to be different and look from another angle as opposed to the traditional front view

Long story short---When I painted Christ---I was extremely focused

Now I 1st was going to put a fire in front of the cross and changed my mind at the last minute and went with Mary

To me it doesn't get there??

So here in the dregs of winter I'm considering shortening the painting (taking a knife and cutting Mary out---praying She forgives me)

Currently the ptg is 24x36---if I crop it it will knock it down to about 14 x36 (and I'm gonna lose some sky I was happy with)

What's your thoughts
Thanks

and what it would be after
