Looks like a real treasure trove!
I get my dose of car photos from the events that happen in Tuscany... now that I think of it, there's the Piaggio Museum in Pontedera, but I never had the chance to visit it...
If only the nicer cars area were better lit, I would go there again. Now it was a challenge to get anything done without tripod. Kind of frustrating. There is atleast one better car museum in Finland, so next time I will probably go there. Not really used to shooting cars, so a lot to learn in angles and framing.

You live in Tuscany? Wouldn't care much about cars, if I lived there. All those lovely small towns, wine yards and scenery. So beautiful anywhere you go. I was still using DA50 the last time I was there, so can't post anything here
I try to go atleast one's a year to Italy to keep in touch with the language and to enjoy atmosphere, my wife's horse might limit my chances for a while.

Here's a picture I took last winter, yeah, I know it's quite out of season right now, with my M 135/2.5 of some ice that had formed under the influence of strong easterly winds. The shapes were very nice and really worked magic with the low sun. I'm not sure about the aperture, but I guess fairly open considering the 1/1000th exposure at ISO 100.
Lovely composition and colors. M135 has stunning 3D qualities.

Some shots of an abandoned village in Aragón, north-eastern Spain, taken at the end of last year with the M 35mm f/2.

Yeah, I do...
Well, there's the Mille Miglia, the Firenze-Fiesole historical... I'm posting some pictures but most of the ones I took at this year's event are with the 10-20mm so I can't post here either Will select some detail shots I made with the fifty.

M85/2 with the Sony A7. It's not a sharp lens, but I still like it. And it's small.

Great job with the food shots - you got me smelling those grilled fish and the seafood platters...

Second one is very nice, it has a coherent palette, but it also has enough variety not to be monotonous.
I would have probably tried not to cut the reflection in the first and to give a little more air to the rock's reflection in the second.
The 100 is quite long, so I reckon framing must have been difficult and shaky.
...and after all it could be just my OCD mind that's talking

Thaks for comments.
I find the balance better on the first with 16:9 framing. Thought full reflection would be nice, it adds too much empty space on the right corner. On the second, there would just be more rocks. Have to draw the line somewhere.
I try to keep tripod with me when I go to shoot shots like this. Sharper results and keep the camera on base ISO.

-----------

I know I'm trying to save the SIC shots to wrap up in the end, but I think I take this apart, because I tried something I had no prior experience. The image is stitched from 3x3 images. Each row had different focus to have full view in focus. So focus stacking thru panorama stitching. Of course there's no point doing it like this, as you could normally just take shorter lens, but apparently it's possible
