The lovely Westgate gardens in Canterbury looking towards Tower House.

I liked the contrast between the young couple and their surroundings. Happily texting on their phones, they seem completely at ease in the peace and serenity of the Victorian gardens overlooked by the House, which is currently used as the Lord Mayors office.

Well composed. The couple is facing into the scene. Beautiful old stone building and setting. Lots of interest in this B&W. TG

The gardens certainly invite tranquillity while the delightfully quirky old building adds character to the atmosphere. Your impressive b&w conversion has brought out the texture of the building's fabric especially well.

You have clipped the top of the building, which I think is crenellated; a slight zoom out, 1 or 2 mm, would have included it as a little more interest. An alternative suggestion would been to try portrait format and zoom out a touch more still. A third possibility would be to crop just to the left of the flower-bed / tip of the long shadow, thus removing the modern building and some of the 'dead ground' of featureless grass and concentrating the important elements even more.
This is not to denigrate the image, which after all works pretty well as-is!

Ill bet theyre texting each other too.

Its slightly tilted downwards on the left. Might work better too if you crop some space from the left, and add more contrast.
