Interesting that the photos you took are 4 blocks from where I live, so I know the area intimately: Union Square/NYC, looking north up Broadway. All the shots you took were from the backs of the photographers. Could you explain why you chose that approach. Don't want to sound harsh, but I don't find these compositions compelling, but maybe I'm missing something.

I think there are several ways to strengthen these comps. One is, as suggested above, to have the photographer's personality/attention more directly indicated with some facial expression, squint, positioning.
Without that content you might consider a shot that more clearly shows the capture of the scene on the back of the camera, echoing the actual scene the photographer is taking. I think you'd need a close up of the camera to fill enough of the frame to make it a subject within a subject more effectively.

thanks for the feedback and i agree.

my original concept was to capture people taking photos while having another well known attraction behind them. for example, on wall st people are always taking photos of the george washington statue with the stock exchange right behind them. didn't have time to make it down there so i went with the 'capture and image within the image' angle, but this did leave behind the face of the photographer and with it what you both point out as missing.

It would be better, conceptually for that topic, to photograph a photographer photographing another photographer - visual recursion. ... Perhaps photographing another photographer....

Alternately, photograph a photographer between two mirrors - deep vanishing other photographers.
