Number 2 is pretty good. Red and blue often work well. The composition is good; even better cropping out the bush on the left, just behind the car.

cheers Dave S

How do you know all this? Perhaps you teach in Parsons?

boring depends upon the viewer & their mental state

I love art that elevates the mundane & I think you have done this well in the series you've offered us here, which should be appreciated at the largest size you've offered us

I suspect their impact would be even greater when printed at an even larger size

the middle photograph has the most web impact, perhaps for its colors ...well seen & timed

the last might be my favorite ...I suspect this one was from Sweden, as I spent some winter time in Uppsala & recognize the signs

your comment about Parsons speaks for your academic background, which having spent too many late hour discussions with photography academics (albeit RISD & perhaps too intoxicated at times) can stifle as much as enlighten

enjoyed seeing this series

good seeing you post here again
