Very nice creative use of selective focus. To me it looked weird at first, but within a couple of seconds I was convinced.

I like the idea a lot.  I would have preferred it without the roof or the (reticulation?) pipe on the right, though.  The other elements of the selective focus, the flag, the colours and the light are lovely.

I wouldn't suggest that Russ cr*p that pipe out, but he might be willing to disappear it with Content Aware Fill.

I've only just seen this one. I like it a lot, but I agree it would be better without the corner of the building. CAF / cloning shouldn't be too hard: I think a crop would spoil the balance.

Okay. By popular demand.

That's much better than cropping.

Good - but you could do a better job, I think. Some of the tip of the roof is still there.
