There's great composition in your images here, I just love street photography.

If I maybe so bold, as to suggest to you on this set of images, both increasing the exposure by one stop and also have a quick look at the white balance, as I'm getting a warm colour cast on them.

Just had a thought, you did post these images as sRGB colour space, if not that might account for these variations, I know Lightroom defaults initially to AdobeRGB 1998.

Milan looks to be a city I would like to visit myself, based on what I seeing from your work here.

The widescreen effect and the warmer colour case makes these look like captures from a movie. Nice job

Thanks for the comments!
Actually I voluntarly provided images with a warm atmosphere and reduced exposition and contrast to make them look as a movie scenes, that's because I'm not so good with B&W processing

I agree they are well taken images but what you wanted to achieve has not quite come off I think. I include two images where the only thing done to them is a simple white point correction and brightness adjustment. They should be seen as a sort of control standard and represent the opposite of what you wanted to do , so your affords should perhaps lie somewhere in between.

As always I only want to contribute an alternative for consideration.

Greetings

I think the edits are much improved. Much easier to view.

What a fun series although I do agree about the white balance. These are too good not to have a go at correcting it. Thanks for sharing them.

Thanks all for the comments.

That's the original pictures corrected with a lower contrast (I found the K 55mm too contrasted in this occasion):
