A Game for Two

I was taking pictures in a plaza outside the Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires when I saw this couple dancing tango with a crowd of interested observers around them. I started shooting from different angles, trying to get the gorgeous sunset and church in the background. The first 15 shots didn't come out like I wanted because either they weren't framed correctly or the couple was in a position that didn't look. I was trying to capture the passion and sensuality of tango and I was getting frustrated. I remember snapping this shot and looking at the viewfinder and thinking "That's the one."
