Completely forgot I submitted this, probably had a few more DPC friendly shots but this was just such an unexpected moment. I was walking around Venice and noticed the couple talking, I raise my camera up to take a photo and all of the sudden she leans in for a kiss!

WOW! Thank you for the Posthumous Red Ribbon, never thought I would get one! I love your comment too, that is the feeling I got from this photo but didn't know how to explain it.

she is the last one to leave him... on the other hand, his pose suggests that he is kinda okay with that :)

ah how sad, in that eternity of kiss, only one lover is still, the other already back in the drift of time.

Coming back to comment, this is one of my favorites in the FS. I thought this was wonderful moment! The composition is great, the gondola in the fg is a great frame for the couple. 9
