Now.... a very large number of my family members (including children, my mother and my aunt) were at this park today for our family reunion. The couple in the photo are NOT family members. Several of us found it a bit curious they would be so engaged in such a VERY public display of affection (or whatever) in front of so many folks they didn't even know ... I did, though, think that red thing framed them awfully well...LOL

So Huntington is a hotbed of romance, who knew?! ;)
Yes, I can see the framing was irresistible, especially in red.
But you know, it is just fun to see two people so happy together ~
thanks for sharing this one :)

Interesting and a great quick pick Shelly. Nicely framed with the red curvature in FG. Good color.

That's a great way to do this Shelly and to be able to take - steal such intimate image and the expressive moment is an achievement! coz I love to do it myself
The reference triangle is there directing the focus and the tones helps in setting the mood and this leaves the viewers imagination...
A very tender, both look totally at ease together and emotive image for all the right reasons but i like the compo and framing with all the emphasis on body contact. Great mood evoked on this well spotted opportunity. Well done.

I can't say they crossed any threshold of decency just by liking each other. Rather they gave you a very nice photo although they may not have been aware of that red thing that you used so well for framing them. The red bow against the light and dark green background, and with the caressing couple perfectly placed inside it, has given you a very fine composition.

I like it very much and also always find amazing how different things are from country to country (in Argentina this would be ok, but there are places where one could not think about it :-) ).
Going to the photo, of course I like how you used focus leaving the couple OoF, like if you wanted to preserve their intimacy.

Dear friend, I don't have the experience of kissing in the free space.
Because if I had the experience I had fallen in the prison for a simple job.
But now that I look at from afar I see is not that bad.!!!
