It is evident you have caught a special moment in the conversation of these two men. Nothing much to change from this point of view. I am a bit curious about your camera settings. Why such a high shutter speed, for instance. I also notice that the people in the background market scene are sharply in focus, whereas the main subjects are very slightly out of focus. In terms of your capture, it may not be very important, though a sharper foreground might have produced a more dramatic shot. Still a rather good shot. Regards, Paul

Thanks. I know what you mean.

I'd normally shoot in aperture priority wide open, or perhaps at f4 for this sort of thing to keep a fast shutter speed (the light levels are often changing and I have a lot more unusable shots due to camera shake than to depth of field).

That said, later that day I was shorting in shutter priority at about 1/400 to get round this, with auto ISO set.

The focus point was set once on the rear guys face using the AE/AF button, then I took a few frames based on that focus point. The autofocus isn't great on the Olympus though. I quite like the foreground being out of focus with the main subject sharp, although I see what you mean about the background maybe being sharper than the main subject.

It'd be a lot easier using the viewfinder/autofocus on my D700, but then you can't discretely shoot from the hip with an articulating LCD on a tiny camera with that.

Thanks for the comments
