Looks like your simultaneous post wiped out my comments. This "morphing" happens in real-time communicating. In short, my message was that the images that struck me most effectively were those that had the most white SPACE and less congestion of linear tangle. Manhattan may be congested, but it is also fast and breezy. The dense linear images seem more appropriate to the Victorian milieu.

Oddly, two of my favorites, the street corner with people and the view from the Empire State Building, have no color. Not that your color is defective--to the contrary, it is lovely. It may simply be that the line drawings seem more elegant, in terms of "economy of means" or at least convey more impact because of the direct sponteneity. These particularly strike me as New Yorker sort of images. But the Marin-like water color first shown is certainly one of your best--which you probably recognized by selecting it first.
