I have been staring at this one for so long, I can see much of it anymore.  It even broke the GPU of my computer.  Fortunately, an upgrade of the driver seemed to fixed the problem.  So please let me know what you think.  The part I am most uncertain is the hands of the sitting guy.

Hi Shujen,

I think you have done a beautiful job on this and have kept the feel of its age. Only two things catch my eye on the sitting guy on your left.  I see a white spot below his button close to his underarm that I think is damage. The other thing is his hands. I could go with what you have now, but I think the fingers are open rather than curled up.

Great job!

Shujen, I agree with Margie that youíve done a beautiful job of restoring this photo while keeping the feel of itís age.  Thumbs Up v.2  I too, think that man's hands are open rather than curled up.  

Margie, Iíve taken a real close look at the ďwhite spot below his button close to his underarmĒ on the original file. To me it looks very much like a bit if handkerchief poking up out of a pocket.

Pat, you could be right about the hankerchief, so Shujen it maybe best to leave it.

Thanks Margie and Pat,

Every time I zoomed in, I thought the fingers were curled.  Every time I zoomed out, I thought they were straight.  I agree with you that straight fingers look more natural.  I will fix them up.

At the first look, that patch looked too low for handkerchief for modern jacket but when I compared to the pocket handkerchiefs in the other two jackets, they all looked about the same height.
