i think it would've added something if the jewelry on the table was also in focus

Great subject, appropriate lighting. A bit of increase in sharpness and contrast would have made this great shot a greater one.

That's the best symbolic picture I've seen in this challenge. Beautifully done too.

I think of this more as aged than weathered but I'm not going to quibble over semantics. What hurts it is the OOF necklace to the left. I would have left that out of the image. The hands are wonderful.
