awwwwwww, now this is the essence of St Valentine's Day.
Love the flowers behind his back and that he is ringing the doorbell.
Looks to be a photo for the family scrapbook.
Very well done,

  Somewhere out there is a magazine that could really use this shot. It is a eye catcher, and has a certain amount of impact that really pulls the eye into the image.

Me? ..................... Love it!!

  Donna, when this popped up on the home page a moment ago, I figured I'd repeat how very much I enjoyed this when I saw it as a winner waaaaaay back in March...then I discovered I had managed to overlook adding my two cents back then!! Yikes!
A belated, and massive, CONGRATULATIONS to you!
THIS IS GREAT!!! You deserved to be on Cloud Nine for this gem's Second Place spot, and we all should hope to capture such a sweet moment at some point in our photographic pursuits!
