I think they work much better than the last ones of yours I commented on - the point of view and relation between the subjects is much stronger. Interesting and thought provoking.

I'm not a fan of selective colour. I can see how it focuses the eye on a particular person, but I'm not sure what message that is trying to convey. If there's a metaphor here, how about the 'man of God' being bathed in colour, while those around him are in dreary shadows? Just a thought.

With the second one, zoom in/crop more tightly. Run your eye around the edge of the frame and there are lots of small instrusions that distract from a strong central subject. Also there are too many boring paving stones in the foreground, I've lopped those off in my crop.

My crop did leave a lot of shiny pavement along one edge, so I darkened that a tad as bright spots attract the eye first and it had become a distraction.

Just my 2p!

I'm not keen on partially coloured images, I don't like colour popping either, so I've concentrated on V2.
The composition's a little off. There's lots of floor in the foreground and very little room above the subjects' heads. Also the black thing in the bottom left is a distraction.
I've cropped it to redress the balance in the composition and removes some of the foreground.
I'd like to have moved the subjects further from the centre, whereas I've actually moved them closer to it. I wanted the man to be on the right hand edge, talking into the image but unfortunately there's not enough on the left to allow it.
I've got rid of the black thing too.

Jester.

Sorry, I'm going to have to cast another 'no' vote on the partial colour job. For me, its just too much intereference from the photographer. It's the kind of image I want to make my own assessment of, not feel like I'm being pushed in one direction or the other by the photographer.

I liked the second image far more too. It seems to be a really interesting scene, I find myself examining both people and trying to work out why she is talking to him, where she comes from etc. I think we all have emotions of some sort when it comes to these street preachers.

Isolating the two figures with depth of field in pic 2 would have made the image stronger for me, as the background distracts my eye quite a bit, and I agree that the two look better when its cropped to make them closer.

But yes, an interesting scene and a good photo

Not sure your technique suites here, but actually we may be seeing too much od it. You nearly always use this technique in your street photography, and I wonder if a change might be in order - natural, stark mono, something different.

Of these, v2 is by far the best - a better link in the image. V1 is detached with the preacher on an edge looking out of the frame.
