    Nice - 2,5 and 6 for me - but I'd crop #2 in from the left to remove the two people closest as I find them distracting from the main subject and it would IMO enhance the perspective :)

    My first attempts at candids were nothing to shout about, however good effort and as others have said, keep plugging away.

    My advice would be to a) find some more interesting subjects i.e. people that stand out and b) when you find them (such as the old guy with the guitar), try and make them the main point of the frame
