Default another buckle

Hard to get pictures of shiny object here so I just opted for shots of different areas. After taking the pictures (cameras can be cruel) I saw shading areas that needed improving for sure. Should have re taken pics of my improvements but buckle is now gone to a new home. Thanks for looking. Any constructive comments are always appreciated.

Hi Gail
Nicely done but I can suggest , the buckle may have needed a touch better finish with a finer wet / dry paper.

But saying that I an looking with cataract eyes

I mean No offence Gail.

No offense taken SE. I foolishly went over it with some 1200 grit paper trying to cut the glare. I won , t do that ever again. LOL .When I refined some of the shading I was able to lightly buff out most of the scratchiness you can see here. Thank you for looking though, I am still very much an amateur here. Thanks for commenting, and thank you Rob.
