    Getting a shot at this emotional moment itself is quite an achievement. I would have been busy trying to console the lady in pic rather than cliking but...that's me.

    Great shot..!!

    It may be just me, and I could be in the wrong here but this shot looks very staged. Her expression, the composition, how the subject's hand in the foreground is raised as if caught in some kind of shameful act is too perfect not to have been posed, but if it's not then excellent candid shot.

    the beauty of that photo is as its taken from a movie scene ....... she discovers the truth.....the painful truth, and he is trying to explain......but pain appears in her eyes and you from behind the explaination capture your photo to show us how strong pain is and how vague explaination is.....................absolutely nice capture

    This is a great shot. The emotion in the woman's face is so genuine. I'm led to believe they haven't seen each other in a very long time and she may not have expected to see him.
