- This is hard challenge and I believe every single photo here are already retake. I came up with this idea to make the mirror as old version of my friend. I'm not really satisfy with old effect but I need to give a try. I just added texture on the mirror shot by using granny's picture which I took below our block.

my prediction would be 5.5.

- taken in ambient light with reflector to light the face

This is a great idea, I like the way the figure in the mirror is looking right at us. I think it would have been better to just use a different older model for the reflection, (hard to do, I know) but it would have put it over the top for me.

I like the concept, but feel like the "older" image could have better editing - especially in the tones. That type of editing is extremely difficult to get it to look right, and you probably spent lots of time on it.

Once known for my looks, condemed now to just read books. Ashamed that I may wither in this state, someone please save me from my fate. Youth is valued as the holy grail, but wisdom valued highest when we become frail.

E for effort. I know what you were going for, but except for the left corner of her mouth, she looks dirty more than she looks old.
