This looks highly suspicious to me; it just doesn't look natural. Not to say that there is no way a photo exists of Freddie kissing Barbara, but this pic looks as if it has been photoshopped or played around with somehow...

...but then I am no expert, so who knows? :)

It looks ok to me, a few photo's are available from the same time, like the one below, although i have seen a few photo-shopped one's, like one with Princess Diana.

Yes, I know that it fits in time-wise with some of the other photos of Freddie and Barbara that we know of, but it just looks a little odd (more Barbara's face - well, side profile). Not that I doubt Freddie would have kissed her...I just think the discolouration on her face and the overall bad quality doesn't fit with the other photos taken at the same time.

I'm just not buying it; after looking at the pic a bit more closely, I definitely think it is a fake.

We shall just have to wait to see if anyone can dig up another, clearer image. Until then, I will remain highly suspicious. :)

It could have been taken by an amateur ( someone in the entourage/ guest) using a cheap analogue camera or it's from the " reject" folder of the photographer who took the other images of BV and FM at "Deutsche Eiche", Munich that were ( at least ) quite well published in German tabloid media in 1984 (or 85 ?-- Can't remember the exact year, sorry) -- Technically it's crap, but photoshopped ? Certainly not.

I strongly suspect that the picture is real, genuine :) Barbara and Freddie were at "Deutsche Eiche" in 1984...there are a lot of pics of that moment but I think that this pic is different because It was taken with another camera (a cheap one)...I agree with JN_JN :) Probably Barbara and Freddie didn't even know these photos were taken...It was a very private moment :)
