I wasn't sure what to do about the guy in the background so I left the first one as is. I like your crop better though. Gets rid of most of the distraction. I have some better cropped ones on my Flickr page but he isn't facing the camera as much, so I posted this instead.I think that you have not decided exactly what you think is important and framed around that.
In the first one, I would have framed it so that the person stirring is clearly within the frame - and away from the margin.

In the second, it is unclear what you think is important -
the man - but the outline of his face is obscured by the stuff behind him,
the drawing - but it is at a very acute angle and is hard to see well
the background - it is in relatively good focus.
I think it is important to figure out exactly what you want the audience to understand as the center.
It is fine to have lots of stuff to look at but decide what is importnat and compse and edt around that.
Thank you. I've got another festival in 2 weeks, I'll try for less clutter and no poles, lol.
