I find all your images (except the last one) way too blue.
I just clicked the "auto-level" button in my editing program and within a second I got this - imho - already much better result.

Thank you for your input. I would disagree with your evaluation. Your edit is too sterile and too white, and the yellow from the light is too cool for my taste. There certainly was a blueness to the light, and it was every bit as dark as I have portrayed it. I was struck by how much the light was evening like, closer to 'the blue hour' rather than just before 11am, the sun having risen just under 2 hours before the shot was made.

The reason I took the shot as I did was because I found the warmth of the electric light an interesting juxtaposition against the natural blue light from a sky full of snow. It snowed for 13 hours that day. I'm afraid your edit makes it too sterile with none of the reason for me taking the shot. I only wish it was a more traditional looking electric light.

That last shot in the series was taken the day before, before the snow came and stayed.

And yes, my monitor is calibrated - with Colormunki i1

Some more from Norway with the A7RII

3. On the way over on the boat, there was a public deck. Knowing we were travelling back in the hour before dawn, I was looking forward to going back up on the deck but the ferry they used didn't have a public deck, so this was shot through the windows which were covered in dried salt water which has affected the sharpness

4. Shot through the front window of our coach, I have tried to eliminate the wire, but have found that it difficult to do so without it being obvious it's been done...

Thank you for your input. I would disagree with your evaluation... (Snip)

I would disagree as well, the most fundamental principal of visual images is about contrasting elements within the picture frame. With the benches you could probably exaggerate the difference a little more and use light/dark to further contrast the areas.
Balanced colour does not mean neutral colour, you can balance cool areas against warm.
A nice series with interesting and well caught light. :)

The elements contrasting a little more:
