Well done...

I wouldn't say the first image lacks any subject at all - the awning casting a shadow, the convergence of the left and right sides of the frame - are sort of subjects in there own way.  But I understand what you mean.

I like the second image a bit more.  It might have been better to bump the ISO up a bit to get a faster shutter speed than 1/10 which would have allowed you to freeze the movement of the second girl better.  But the composition is solid.  You could try rotating the image counter clockwise by 1% as the baristas are leaning back a bit, but I find the vantage point interesting and the out of focus foreground elements frame the subject well.

Overall good job, well done.

Best, Markus
