I like these - but if the man in No. one were a little less to the centre and those seagulls hadn't lost their heads I think the shot would have been better...
I'd edit the seagulls out since they're not in focus and you chopped thier heads off, otherwise I really like the first one. although you're usually not supposed to center your subject, it works great in this shot
in the second I just feel like i'm invading thier privacy, and it doesn't look like a happy hug...
These are pretty nicely composed but they badly need some color and contrast management. Both are severely low contrast and the white points need correction.
#2 has a sad feeling to it. Looks like they're about to break up, just broke up, or she lost someone she loved.
I very much like #1. My very first thought was how much I liked it being in the dead centre (which breaks all rules and isnt usually eye catching/pleasing) but it works fantastic in this shot. It's perfectly symetrical. And the lack of color suits the mood.
The seagulls should go though.
