Winter scene in platinum from X-Pro1 images

Some of the snow images I took the other day of Central Park are intended to be converted into platinum prints. As a first step, I convert them in Photoshop and make digital prints to establish the tonality I want. Once I have something I like, I move on to having the platinum print made using an inter-negative.

I used to take these photos with a Nikon D800, but the resolution was so high that I had a problem with posterization of smooth tones, such as skies, when the images were converted. Then I switched to the Fuji X cameras, which have both a smaller sensor and lower resolution. This seems to have solved the problem nicely.

Here are some of the images I am considering:
