    Both subjects are dead center. That hurts the photos.

    The first one is awkward. Not sure what you could do to this one. The second one could be improved by moving the subjects down and to the right slightly so you get more of the building in the background but keep the bird and people down and to the right.

    I totally agree about dead center, not a good thing to do in most images.

    The first one could be improved by changing your shooting angle. When doing most types of action shots, the image is usually more interesting when you see emotion and faces.

    The second one has alot of dead space around it. I agree with moving them off to one of the sides of the image, or even getting down to floor level, focusing on the pigeon and having the women in the back slightly blurry. Or get rid of the pigeon all together and fill your frame with your subject more.

    Open up the aperture if you can, get some separationg between the subject and the background.

    perhaps a bit of cropping can help with focusing in on your subject, that way it's ok if they are 'dead centre'. i would leave the pigeon in on #2, but get rid of those fences.
