Tar-shingle make for a very regular pattern. They are factory made after 
all. You did a good job at showing their typical very rough surface.

In your source photo, they probably painted them just for the shot, or 
edited the photo to remove the present aging and weathering. Good job at 
reconstructing the weathering.
