    I dont think he is tugging on anything the rope is most likely not connected to anything. On number two you probably should crop closer on the right side of the image. Get rid of the building otherwise the composition is fine. In my opinion

    Ok call me crazy here, but I would go back with a step ladder, or different time of day, and play on the shadows... another dimension all together in these photos... this also avoids background unwanteds... With all that cement work around , the shadows would play right into the lines and shape of the cement...

    On art as these statues, any background clutter, ( Bldgs/ people etc) will just kill it...

    Hmmm I agree with the stepladder idea since my back was against a docks edge for both images ..
    I just might try it ..

    I find the lamp post and sign too distracting. I agree with going back with a stepladder. How about experiment with a wide angle lens to exagerate the lines.
