Can’t find the words, say it with an image. (click on picture for high res)
PS: I can’t figure out why I framed this picture this way. I always take special care to include the horizon line, but somehow I blew it here, maybe in urge not to miss the moment.

One of the biggest challenge when shooting at wide apertures, is that the timing between distance to subject and his expression must be perfect. This is even more true with a rangefinder as you basically have very little time to reajust focus in these kinds of moving situations. Most of the time, you get only one of the two right (focus or expression), and every once in a while both. The best way around this problem : F8 and be there.
Not my way to shoot though.

On a Saturday morning, it might get tough to grab a taxi in Rosario. At least, they won’t say they did not see that lady.
PS : taken with the Nokia 1020, have a closer look at the end to see the amount of detail that this smartphone is able to render. (click on picture for high res)
