Well.... you asked for my thoughts, I still give them, I do need to get around to everybody again and I'm gathering up resources for everyone with green stamps currently, sorry it's taken a lil long. If you still want a vaca after this, just lemme know, I don't see an explanation post, just in the title.
The rips and tears are to sharp they should be blurred and made to look more ragged if possible.
A bit of tilt, just a tiny bit, to the map on top of whatever background you chose will be a great addition.
Additional subtle folds in the fabric of the map will add some sense of the material being used for the map. I don't mean paper angular folds, I mean like wavy crinkles in the fabric, see the 'bumps/waves" in the fabric below?
The title isn't in the image, its ON the image, the pattern in the fabric should go through onto the title.
The bridges are bothering me, it might be the color as well as orientation of the bridges, either vertical or horizontal, the best looking one is the bridge that's on an angle.
You may want to think about going for some more sepia type colors for the playable surface the greens may be just a tad bright and to good for what is an "old" map.
