Mr.Vito Rallo shows good imagination and construction skill in finishing his ideas. He should perhaps attempt more complex ideas. Good luck !

In problem 140 both solutions can be shown from diagram when black rook is placed to e-line (for example Te7) and this is also C+.

In problem 141 I would have preferred white pawn in f3 iinstead of black pawn in e4, because if you less black power and more white power in helpselfmate that’s better.
This idea is also C+
