This is Vancouver's version of Pike Place market in Seattle...A great spot for this kind of photography. Your opinions are most welcome. The 3rd is my favorite.

What a great place! And great work on BW conversions. Seems like an excellent choice.
First sets the stage well. Love the pipes above and the light coming down. Excellent processing
Second is a nice candid. I kind of wish the woman right image was making eye contact, but her wide open eyes, expression, glasses, keep me pulled back in. Maybe a bit heavy on the vignette on the left.
Third is an interesting capture. I keep wondering about the illumination of his forehead and cheek. Phone? Laptop? Makes me want to see what he is viewing.

It gets so crowded there it makes it tough to walk around...All 3 images just appeared so quickly I didn't have time or room to compose better images...That's my story..😀. The 3rd image I was almost in the stall with him....Thanks for thoughts Scott.

You've crossed over to the dark side, entering the world of street photography.

I applaud you for getting close to people which is essential and often uncomfortable for many. To make these images rise to a higher level, you need to be telling a stronger story. For instance, in photo #2 and #3, we see the workers' faces which are interesting but do not know what they're selling or how they're relating to their customers. What makes these trades people special or expert in what they're doing? You mentioned that the market was extremely crowded but your photos don't reveal that. Perhaps there are other photos you took that reveal more?

As a suggestion if you get back there, you might stake out one booth, study it for a while before you start shooting, even talk to the trades people. Then keep shooting....lots.
