That second last pic, "La minestra riscaldato", is something to absolutely weep with envy over and to treasure as a great example of what is possible with strong composition and strong PP.

What did you do for PP with that shot, by the way?

Thanks for the kind words.

The PP went as follows:

Made a Tiff in DXO with basic adjustments and then opened it in Picture Window Pro. ( a cheap but powerful photoshop clone)

Using a mask I darkened the sky and then used the dodging and burning tools just like I used to do in the darkroom to brighten the boats and add some more darkness where needed.

I took this shot  with my "obsolete" GX1 and was surprised how much I was able to manipulate the image without losing image quality.
