Did the girl in #2 spend too long in the shadow of the nuclear meltdown in Japan? The green glow is not working. #1 and #5 speak the loudest to me.

1 & 5 for me as well, with #3 as runner up. Perhaps bring up the shadows slightly in #1 as well as overall exposure? Any idea what "gg" refers to? I think you've done a great job on some documentary style candids here. Welcome to the forum, "D".

The B&W shots look too flat to me. Is that a look you are going for?

Nope I wasn't really going for flat. What about it makes it look flat and how can I improve for future shots?

If you use Photoshop you could try curves and click AUTO then experiment a bit.
Basically bump the contrast.
Here's what I mean:

Thanks a lot Joe. What kind of sharpening tool do you use in CS5? Not on these shots but I usually use smart sharpen.

High Pass in Photoshop. I find it does a better job at sharpening. Here's a quick overview but you'll need to fiddle with it until you get the desired sharpness.

On the Layer palette select your Background Layer and right click. Select Duplicate Layer.

With this new layer highlighted select Filter / Other / High Pass. Set the Radius to 2 and click OK.

Go back to the Layer Palette and select Overlay, Softlight or Hard Light from the left drop down.

Now go to the Opacity Slider and select a level of sharpening that seems best to you. Usually something between 20% and 70% will be best.

The first three B&W photos look too dark to me. May be just me.

I thought the "99" was supposed to mean the number of weeks these slugs have been collecting their unemployment checks... ;)
