obviously a nice moment, though i think ideally i might have picked focus on the far subject.

An interesting thought. Do you mind sharing your reasoning?

while it often doesn't work, i find that when focussing on someone interesting behind the obvious subject can make a really strong picture. in this case, judging after the fact, it looks like that would have worked; the second woman is more engaging.

As a practical matter, I could not see either of them clearly enough to have aimed the focus on either face. I just let AF do what it will in the the 3 seconds before they pulled away.

that's pretty much why i prefer manual focus, in a nutshell.
