This time it's not a pavilion, but as the river Seine was an important way in this Paris World's Fair of 1900, all the fluvial material will be needed in this project.
Here's a Tug boat of 1900, the original one was restored by an association few years ago, and the museum give me the plans for my reconstruction.
I've also made a little animation for the Association, to show in their shows...

As with the other images in this series, I have small suggestions about the film grain/bleaching/hand tinting effects you are doing here. There are a lot of plugins that simulate this . . . it looks like you're doing a little fogging by using "clouds" on the edges to lighten and desaturate, but that's only partly effective.
One simple idea is to duplicate the layer, and blur it, setting the composite to "soft light". Then desaturate the orginal layer (eg, turn it to black and white). This composite gives a nice hand tinted effect
