great shots, im just curious if you did some sharpening in PP because like little noise is visible in the backround, but ISO 100

probably, the sharpening brought out the noise, just a small advice, i always sharpen in a different layer (copy the main) and use a mask which i create with a lasoo tool. To decrease the boundary of the created mask you have to blur the mask, but only the mask in that way you can select the area you want to sharpen, on the other hand you can denoise the backround without loosing detail of the main object, just use a mask, but the shots are great
