finished or not?

Hi,
I made a restoration that took loads of time, and I think there's something missing. Should I go further, or should I let it that way.
Tell me what you think, thanks.

In my opinion, you removed too much detail of the surroundings.

Re: finished or not?

I quite like your restoration. Just a couple of things that may make it look better (just my opinion of course!)

1. You have partially removed what looks like a half height door on the left hand side but you have left the right hand side still showing by the handlebars. If it was me I would remove all traces or fix the door.

2. I think it would look better with a bit more density looks just a little washed out.

I like what you did. I would probably toss a border back on it when your done, Just because to me it makes it more authentic because of the time frame. Great job tho!

Thanks all, looks that it need a few hours to go, anyway, the rest is far less tedious than what I've already done.

Re: finished or not?

The question of whether it is done or not is only one you can answer based on what your goal was. To me, it looks like you have finished the the damage repair and now need to treat it like any other photograph and make color and luminance adjustments.

Re: finished or not?

Hi again,
Do you think it's better now. I'm puzzled because it's getting over complicated now...

I do think it is better now - the important thing is are you satisfied in achieving what you wanted? Not sure what you mean by getting over complicated though.
Well done

I think I'm over 30 layers now, That's over-complicated (I'm still not satisfied with the front wheel, but cannot/don't want to figure out the way to achieve it). that'll do! thanks
