    Hi, wondering if any of you have any tips or advice on what i can do to this photo.

    I have allready touched it up a bit. Bit of sharpning, touch of saturation, brightness etc, oh and had a nasty go at cloning out a horribler bin.

    Im just wondering what else i should do, and how i can improve my allready novice tweaks.

    mmm, now i look at the "large" version, the out of focus becomes even more apparent. I was looking to maybe get this printed, may have to rethink...

    Damn shoddy reflexes

    Yep, it's OOF. That's quite apparent. Make sure you catch that in post before you put effort into working it; if it's OFF it probably isn't worth it.

    That said, your clone job is very obvious. The rubber stamp can't be used effectively as a blunt instrument. You need to choose a small brush size, and work slowly and meticulously, with many layers, and then blurring the heck our of them so that they transition between edit and original isn't so obvious. ;)
