just experimenting with 'aging' but has it worked?
Too much? not enough?
Have i managed to make the photo much more interesting or was it a boring shot in the first place?
any suggestions on impreoving the shot in any aspect?

:)

Can others edit my Photos
Photos NOT OK to edit
I like your altered version a hell of a lot. I personally think you should leave it as it is! Looks really good.

Is that an action? How did you do that?

Hi , It wasn't an action...

1 Firstly i tweaked the curves a little and sepia toned the image with hue/saturation
2 copied the layer > gaussian blur > adjust opacity to about 48%
3 new layer > black 'grunge' paintbrush (see here for some freeness http://www.photoshopsupport.com/tools/brushes.html ) painted edges and random areas
4 set layer to colour burn
5 new layer > white 'grunge' brush - painted random areas
6 set layer to lighten or something
7 adjusted opacity of the painted layers

and that's pretty much it... just played with it till i was happy really...
Oh and i cloned out the sign to the right as it made it look too 'modern' for the tone of it...

well improved, love the sepia tone you've given it, i noticed what appears to be a slight reflection on it (top right) was it taken through glass or has the cloning produced those lines?, because it does'nt appear on #1...
