#1 could use a shallower DOF, #2 is my choice though you could crop the foreground on the bottom left

Try not to shoot people's back or sides without them knowing. It is better that they know what you are doing. If you have trouble with shooting them from the front. Approach them, and get to know them before photographing people in general.Reason why people will scold you for photographing is because they do not know you and what your intentions are. If they get over that, by knowing more about you,... they will often oblige to allow you to photograph them. Shooting people's backs are only for cowards, unless you have an effective story to tell, from it.

Hmm...I think it's a little harsh to say shooting people's backs are only for cowards. Sometimes, the subject is not a willing participant. For e.g. journalists taking photos of suspects/convicted criminals, etc....the photo still need to be taken in what ever angle permitted, including from the back. Not saying your comments are wrong...but simply a little harsh.
