A couple at a bus stop in the city of Kiev. Both talked very excited. Later they kissed intimately. Obviously they were not waiting for the bus. I pulled out my camera and took a picture.

An interesting juxtaposition between these two characters with their opposing stances and the girl seemingly objecting to his cigarette, but may be not? A well cropped image that concentrates the attention on the two protagonists. The rather harsh light is reasonably well managed.

Hi Wolfgang. What attracted my attention is the faraway look of the passenger in the bus. Regards. Klaudio.

I love that scene that could've been taken anywhere in the World, a fact that shows that we're really facing Globalization!
Photo quality has pleased me a lot with special regards to the colors, exposure and, of course, composition!
Yes, people in that bus looking at that couple is also a highlight!
The letters on the window of the bus denotes it was in some "russian/soviet" country.
TFS - congrats,

i think she's saying, you better give me that cigarette or i take one from your man bag!
a nice street grab, wolfgang, well framed and your typical clean graphic look. love the black & blue with the yellow background, and the distant faces looking down on them.

We will never know what they were talking about, but their postures and gestures let us make up any kind of story. Their dark clothes go well with the yellow background. A nice detail I just noticed is the trail of smoke from his cigarette that goes right up to her nose. Although smoking kills it also seems to join people together. I think the woman inside the bus is also interested in this scene, or maybe she was just looking at you, wondering why you waste a photo on those two.

This could be profitable shot by a member of the paparazzi. I like the expression on the young woman, but I have no idea what she is saying. Good shot, Wolfgang,

Great grab. I expect Kristin's right, but I prefer to hope she's saying "Put that f***ing fag out, or I'll stick it up your nose."

The bus makes a beautiful background to the image, giving much more color to it! Very good daily life scene, and the detail of the smoke is very interesting in the picture! Excellent job!

Nice snapshot of this young couple, it would be even better without cigarette. I like your POV and also well selected tight crop. The light is excellent. Well done.

Excellent street shot, and a nice catch of the daily life in this part of the world, as they are slowly catching up in their life style. It was not too long ago when life was so different here.
Good shot as always.

Well, I was sure I criticised this picture!
I like very much this street scene, a discussion of a young couple. the yellow bus is a good background, and the bus tourists looking at this scene focus our attention on their gestures: maybe she wants to have the cigarette.
