Nice captures! I really like the #1 & #3. In #3 picture, I guess it is raised platform?

Yes indeed!

I am certainly no pro with taking pictures of random people, but I always found difficult to achieve a great results with f/2.8 lens (or slower), which is still not wide enough (aperturewise) to isolate perfectly well the subject to its background. I generally found the background to be a bit too distracting against the main subject. Of course it all depends on where the picture has been taken, but in the middle of the city that's not so easy.

I found much easier to take pictures of people within their environment in a city (e.g., people crossing streets, people talking together, people dancing/singing, etc...). For such a case, slower lens 3.5-5.6 is generally good enough.

Here are a few examples:
