Just a simple composition ... in a marble landscape with manicured trees, a man in a dark suit and aqua tie attempts to communicate via his cell phone.
Taken at the East Wing Gallery, which was designed by I M Pei

Hi Kristin. The famous architect IM Pei designs and builds for the new beautiful world of the future. In such a world of glass, light, marble and steel, people easily get lost. The man with the mobile phone is a good example. Nevertheless, it is good that there are mobile phones. People have never been so linked with the world and other people.

That's a good title, and I can just detect a slight irony. It's a good and very elegant composition too. It's simple, as you say, but that's the point of it. It captures an aspect of modern life without further comments and unnecessary details. No natural nature and no natural communication face to face.

Intense communication by the man wearing the aqua tie. His body language suggests so.
I feel that the shot is slightly overexposed, probably the use of f stop 5.0 doesn't work here. Were you clicking this shot with auto mode? ISO 800 has further brighten the image, whereas ISO 200 was enough here.
In nutshell the image lacks the warmth.
The touch of kristin is missing here, or may be I expect more from you, dear friend!
