I think this is a much better composition than the first one, Hector.
I think the main subject - the umbrellas could be a little more defined though.
Hector, I really like this a lot.

Hector, wonderful color! :)
However, I echo Yorky--the umbrella stand needs to be more defined. Also, perhaps the color in your buildings is competing too much with the color in the umbrellas. Now, if the mauve building in the center is the focal point, it's all okay--if not, if the market is the focal pint, tone down the mauve a little.
I love this subject!

Hector, I like this composition... And it's beautifully colourful!!!Actually, I liked the first one too... Each stands on its own merit... With this one, there does not appear to be much variation in value, so I also feel as though the buildings are competing with the umbrellas...

Wonderful loose painting. I do agree that the umbrellas need a litttle defining. Maybe just a few ink lines would do it.

Great composition and bright vivid color.
I think suggest to create more contrast in values between foreground and background.
