precious peculiar pawn phalanx - endgame tactics

And who has the better prospects here ?

As you can see, a far advanced pawn phalanx can give big advantages.
Here in a game from Capablanca, white gets a winning position, because of the space advantage, and the control of the a file, and the "feature" that far advanced blocked pawn chains can emerge into passed pawns.
Here a game I just played with the pawn phalanx from the first examples above.
