A bit more wrinkled than it used to be. Used a desk lamp for lighting and had a tablecloth under my hand. For some reason it came out looking like a real backdrop ... distance and angle of the light and shadow I guess. Kind of nice effect.

Not an earth-shattering shot but maybe a nice round 5.

PP - converted from RAW, cropped, levels, color balance, desaturated some, lightly hand-sharpened lines, increased contrast a little, burnt background slightly more, resized, sharpened with noise reduction.

You are going to get a 5.5. I see a 7 in your future, and yes...yes you will pick the million dollar case on deal or no deal and then trade it for $50 and some tickets to see Cher in Vegas...

Nice soft lighting - Just a tad boring and the composition a little awkward.

I like the lighting and the detail. I would have put a little more of an angle on the hand in some way.
