great light, framing and DOF, but as my english skills this is not candid, is it?

Not sure how candid it is, but it's a great street portrait. I'll be curious to read how you processed this. I love the cool, muted colors.

The sense of "moment" is present in this image and the obvious character being captured is full of humor and a sense of fun. Technically, it seems a little dull which may be the lighting conditions - the author might have wanted to use a little more saturation to correct for the washed out effect. The use of the vaguely detailed background is a plus. From an artistic standpoint, the subject is too offset to the right to be truly effective - a little more towards the center would have been a huge plus. Still a worthy entry into the challenge, it just falls short of being outstanding.

i really like this one - very candid IMO

A great smile, an awesome background to provide the context to the image - well done

This is a wonderfully candid shot so it kills me to say that it's a little bright. I don't know how much PP could have been done to lighten it just a tad without losing too much of the photo.

Note-I am not voting in this challenge just commenting on the ones that I can per request in the candid scores forum.
