Working on a Piano Sonata

I am working on my third piano sonata. What is so special about this sonata is that I dedicated it to Beethoven. So I am using components of Beethoven's style such as sudden dynamic changes with my melodies and harmony. 

I am working on the first movement right now and so far I have this:

Introduction: Andante with octave tremolos in the right hand going down 2 octaves of the C minor scale and arpeggios in the left hand, piano until the forte chord at the end
Exposition: Allegro with lots of chords, forte ending on fortissimo chords

I only have a few measures of the Allegro section so far. 

The Andante section sounds melancholy and it is supposed to represent the end of Beethoven's life. The Allegro section so far sounds dramatic and is supposed to represent me as a composer continuing down Beethoven's path as if I was Beethoven II and also how important Beethoven is as an influencing composer to me. C minor is a very fitting key for both of these emotions.

Feedback on my nocturne

I uploaded my nocturne. Here is the link:

I would love some feedback on it. I have heard from another person that I kind of use the same rhythm over and over. I honestly didn't plan on changing the rhythm because nocturnes typically will have a triplet rhythm. And the rhythm of the melody I think is part of why it sounds so beautiful to me. Also it is Bb which is a key I associate with a moonlit night.

I composed it over 3 days.  Anyway, what do you think? 

Duda un poco tontilla. / Query a little silly.

¡Hola! Espero que estén todos bien. Les hago una pequeña consulta: ¿Cómo puedo transcribir los compases 78, 79, 80, 81 y 82 de "Fur Elise" de Beethoven? Estuve intentando con varias alternativas pero ninguna me resulta. Busqué por Google y nada. ¿Qué significan esos "3" arriba de cada tres semicorcheas? Disculpen las molestias, soy nueva en este programa y me parece una maravilla. Gracias de antemano.

Hello! I hope everybody is fine. I ask you a little question: How can I transcribe bars 78, 79, 80, 81 and 82 of "Fur Elise" by Beethoven? I was trying with several alternatives but none of them work for me. I searched for Google and nothing. What do those "3" mean above every three sixteenths? Sorry for the inconvenience, I'm new to this program and I think it's wonderful. Thanks in advance.
