dont like the first one with the wrinkley old woman on the left, looks like she stepped in at just wrong time.

The little child in the second makes me happy! :D Although, I don't quite care for the first one, perhaps it's the awkward angle that was used.

Good job!

I always love this kinda of photos. IMO It does not matter if the techniques is right or wrong, as long as the photo is able to tell a story. For me yours already did it. Good job!

Actually the woman was stepping out of the shot because she has seen me taking pictures and didn't want to get into the frame. I wanted her into the frame, of course. That's one problem with street photography, one has to be as inconspicuous as possible, otherwise people act differently and can ruin a frame that you have one chance to take. And that's why street photographers prefer inconspicuous rangefinders and not a big ass DSLR.
Thanks for the comments, I'm new to this kind of photography, and I find that's one of the hardest of all.
