colors are good. I do think this could have been a lot stronger if you would have gotten closer (while I know that this can be an uncomfortable thing to do, with street photography, it makes a world of difference sometimes.)

Great composition, but it looks too staged.

Great shallow DOF. Good coloring in the bed of leaves I guess they are. Not sure about poverty with the nice shoes and decent clothes.
