Quite charming.
The sunny background and the fence-top decorations enhance the happy mood of the lovers.

Hmmm...
Reminds me of the kiss of Doisneau.
Sorry to say this but the hand on the left with what looks like a smartphone suggests that the moment was staged :-(
Just MHO

Hi Eric, Actually it was after dark, but there was a lot of light on St. George street, St. Augustine.

And Rab: Exactly. I had Doisneau’s “kiss at the Hôtel de Ville”  in mind when I named it. The difference is that this one wasn’t staged. I don’t see a hand at the left or the smartphone. There’s something over there, but it’d be easy to remove it.

You must be getting old, Russ.  :D

At the extreme left of the frame there is obviously the hand of another person holding a smartphone. However, he/she might be just browsing his emails for all we know.

That's because you've just edited the image.  :D

But at least you didn't crop it.   ;)

Right, Eric. I chopped off a meaningless hunk from the left. We don't call that "cropping."
