I've done a lot of work very similar to this.
Most of the time while stepping out of the car or in my film days while advancing the first few frames while loading.
Stupid me. Never thought of selling it.
As for your thesis, remember the saying " this too will pass".
Using what is "selling" as a criteria for what YOU should do is probably a bad idea.
We are in photography's transition phase as digital and analog are competing to be noticed and I've no doubt that a tradition print would be attractive to some collectors for its nostalgia/collectible vibe rather the merit of the image itself.
