Spot on compositon Ania. So well spotted. My only critique would be to lift the brightness on the foreground. Hope this makes sense?

why to change it.. its perhaps best this way.. but perhaps you were pulling our legs.
A very interesting abstract.. Cleverly done.

A composition made by the stonemasons hand, and captured so very well, which is well suited to monochrome.

I'm not sure what you mean by "was taking this photo a number of times and came out with no a difference", Ania.
So, perhaps you wanted the "lovers" less dark?
Your camera has exposed for the bright sky and has therefore rendered the rest dark. A simple burst of flash would have done the trick.
I am assuming these are not really figures, but that you liked the heart shape and felt you could make it look like two people, and in that you have succeeded. There is lovely texture on the stonework, which is revealed with brightening.
So, my answer is brightening the stonework and importing another sky, which I have done in my modification. In the first, I have just showed you brightening and a bit of extra sharpening. In the second, I gave the lovers a nice sunset to muse over, and in the third I decided to darken them a bit more, which would be more naturally in keeping with a sunset shot.
