Thanks for the feedback fmerges and Steve! I like the human element, as you kindly put it, of the vertical one as well but am still undecided as I like the way the green stoplight adds to the foreground in the horizontal one and how it follow the rule of thirds to an extent as opposed to being centered.

Can't say for sure what's the cause of the poor quality. Photobucket was running like a snail for me a moment ago so I did a shortcut and imported from Facebook. That import from FB over to Photobucket might have been a bad idea and could likely be what's bringing the quality down. I burned up my storage space on this forum in no time and am still figuring out the best way to share pics through other hosts. Chalk it up to me being a newb here.
Well it's a gut thing... to me the stoplight doesn't add a thing in that scene particularly, and following the rule of thirds either. To me the 1st image is the winner because it has several things in it, the guy crossing the street, the car overtaking the bus, cars driving in the horizontal plane, and then you have the buildings left and right that gives height to it, and composing whise to me the obelisk has to be in the center, with the buildings it gives depth to the image, another thing I specially like is the two power cables crossing from the building on the left to the two buildings on the right, that's something you don't see that much nowadays. But yeah... it doesn't have the butt on the left edge of the second one... just kidding.

On my laptop it looks fine, as far as it can look fine on a "cheapo" led display.

Note: as an inspirational thing, take a look at Feininger's street photos.

The portrait version just works better. I know it doesn't abide by the rule of thirds but who cares. I find the green light more of a distraction than anything. I like the more simple foreground in the portrait version which then leads you up the avenue (with the nice light on the side of the buildings) to the monument and the sky. Its a nice picture.

Alright, I'm convinced. The portrait orientated one is better. Really appreciate all the feedback so, thank you.

Self-portrait with the 43 (testing the lens, first shot!)

Under day-light (love the "magic")

By night (ground-lamp light)

Let's play with aperture ring!

Looks dreamy Twitch. I really like the way the OOF areas rendered in the first and last ones. Those colors are really nice too.
