Really great stuff Roman. That watchtower one is awesome.

Thanks Luc, D76.
And thanks Gary!
But since so many others were offering suggestions for changes - my first thought, as primarily a black and white photographer, was that this would look great in black and white. So I converted it (nothing fancy, just mode->grayscale) and tweaked the brightness and contrast a bit. This also neatly removes the yellowish stains without any effort with the eyedropper.

Most blest is he who lives free and bold
and nurses never a grief,
for the fearful man is dismayed by aught,
and the mean one mourns over giving.
