1/40s, f6.3, 18-50 lens @ 50mm, ISO 1600
I was standing there with my camera ready, thinking of this week's tough assignment, when these people just stopped 2 meters from me and behaved as if they were to say goodbye. So I anticipated a candid moment and was happy to have my camera on 5 frames per second mode. This is the best of the few shots. Apparently the rather passionate goodbye came as a surprise to the woman, she was wriggling a bit, that's why she is slightly blurred. I believe they did not notice me and I did not feel like running after them for a release, as they were moving to different directions already.
