I know it's not a hug or a kiss, but this image is so happy and these two people look so very well connected to each other...

I hope that you all understand where I'm coming from with this picture....

The captions says it all NOT QUITE..!!! So why the shoehorny comment... Maybe you should read fully before stating.

And to be honest, this site if a little pretentious to me. There are a LOT of good people on here but then there are a few others that lower the tone and they don't even have a single clue about whats good or bad.

The answer to this is that there is NO GOOD OR BAD.... Each images is GOOD for the taker of that image. The only one problem, which is probably where I went wrong, is that whether the image fits the competition.

I failed this time round because I felt that this was a great Candid shot that did not need a hug or kiss. I interpreted the images with more of a TENSION of feelings associated with hugs and kisses.

Sorry I got it wrong, but there is NO NEED to leave NASTY or UN-CONSTRUCTIVE comments......

I happen to quite like this picture but some of you feel the need to leave rude comments about it.. WHY..??

Appreciative criticism doesn't hurt and doesn't cost anything to you.

And in all fairness, I think it captures the moment rather well, although there is no kiss or a hug involved
in this shot, it clearly demonstrates a connection between two people.

funny thing I was thinking a few weeks ago why do we inist on photo's being square. The photo captures the emotion quite well.

That's very nice...really...you'll probably still beat my entry. The border is cutting-edge.
