Polar Opposite of Minimalistic or Simple

These are some more images of Hanover that I made the other day.  I don’t like them, but yet I keep trying to find images around Hanover that I do like.  I prefer simplistic and minimalistic photos.  I can convert these images to B&W and that helps reduce the clutter generated by the colors, but that is not enough.

I have tried long focal lengths to isolate details but all I seem to achieve is compressing the mess.  If I decide to keep trying to find simple compositions, I think I need to get up close to details, but even they turn out to be complex images of peeling paint or rust, etc.  My gut feeling is that I’m not going to make images that I prefer in town.
