One of the charming customs of Mexico, and certainly in Guanajuato, is the way the young lovers (novios) gather in the parks to innocently display their affections. It is benign and perhaps less threatening for the parents then a clandestine meeting.
A sort of shot like this is of course challenging in that I don't fashion myself as a paparazzi, but as you can see she was more or less complicit in this shot. For the full sequence of 3 shots see the workshop!

It's certainly the eye-contact which makes this photograph, and why I think you've made the best choice of the three images in your workshop. Not quite sure how you felt when you were "discovered" lurking with your camera, but the girl seems OK with your presence, so I suppose you were OK too! A decisive moment, for sure.
