Just a crazy idea:
If you cut horizontally the image by the middle (approximatly), you got the top piece and the bottom piece, forget the top piece. Now if you cut the bottom piece vertically into 4 equal pieces.
Your prince's foots are (approximatly) in the two center pieces, forget those two center pieces.
Focus on the left side piece and on the right side piece, even if your painting is not symetrical (and it's better like that) maybe you should "erase" those side zones of the image. Using the diagonal of those zones, I would use a graphical sort of "V" trick (smoke, explosion, architecture..., something dark or neutral) aligned with the prince to hide the details and the contrast on those side zones. Why?
The upper part and the prince (the previous forgotten pieces) are what you want to show (I think). If you "erase" the zones I pointed, you'll give more importance to your subject, and the "V" trick will be in opposition with the cape and open the view to the interesting upper part.
But that's just an idea, i'm not sure if you'll understand it, and if it will work, i recommend you test if you like the idea.
My explications are sometimes so complicated when explaining something really simple, I'm sorry about that.

About your work, you've got an amazing painting style, I can feel some great painting experience back there, I'll be back.

If you really like what you do, you can make marvellous things, if you don't: use your eraser and take a breath!
