Now I'm gonna be real picky with this one Steve
Because you chose to have the Abbey in the background a step or two to the left would have prevented it being obscured by the broken finger and may have revealed all of that stone on the left which is chopped by the frame edge.
f18 also brings the distant Abbey into focus, when I think the emphasis should have been more on the Hand, as the title suggests.
However nit picks apart, a very nicely exposed shot, lots of detail in the hand and Abbey and lots to enjoy.

Constructive criticisiem is always welcome George

I have to agree with George here, but only because of the title that you have given it. The picture that you appear to have wanted would have been very good with the hand and the abbey given equal prominence.

I looked at this and was rather undecided, but on reading George's comments I think he is spot on with his thoughts.
Time permitting I feel it is always a good idea to take several photos with different camera settings and from a different POV. But it looks here as if the sun is only just out of shot off to the right, so I guess moving left may have been a problem. Anyway I think these statues are rather unique so thanks for sharing.

I too can only agree with the comments made by George, Although the abbey being in focus is not a problem to me as the hand is so dominant in the foreground, Still a very good image and goes well with your other images from the abbey.

I'm working backwards through the postings. I assumed from the panoramic shot that this was from wood but I see now it is carved from stone. Very impressive. Some good advice from George as always.
