I feel like Scooter2525!
I also wish I did not know where you had found those scribblings and that sad face, the context shot is so not necessary here. Photo 1 as such is nice, though!
Photo 3 has no recognisable subject (well, none that I would recognise as one). And look how the light on the No Parking sign is precisely in the centre of your frame... I think some much more creative angles or points of view are necessary here to make this scene "speak".
The problem with the second and third images is that they do not have any point where the eye is drawn-- instead they have a lot of different things that could be points of visual interest, leaving the eye to bounce around the image and leave it.
