Goeff, For what it's worth here's my take: #1, no. #2, better, mainly because of the guy walking by with a bag of something we can't identify and dressed wholly out of context with the rest of the people in the shot. #3, ho hum. #4, now we're getting somewhere. The woman against the post is mysterious in a strange way, maybe because of the way she's dressed. It reminds me of one of my favorites from back in the sixties, which I've attached. I downloaded #4 and did a B&W conversion. You might like to try that. It's instructive.
