Perhaps you should say what you are seeking to fix in those shots.

I gave a go to one of them for half an hour. It's by no means perfect but is this towards something like that you are seeking to go? If so I'll try to explain what I did tomorrow.

Here is the desk shot.

Sent you the full file (Save as).

Had to crop the 2nd picture because it was not straight.

Full file if you want.

Re: Anyone wanna practice on this shot?

Wanted a bit of practice so here is my version.

Soften the wrinkles a little with patch tool followed by fade.
A little more work on wrinkles with D&B.
Selective colour to remove a little red from cheeks
Curves correction
Final sharpen.

Not sure if I went too far or not far enough. The reduced version looks far softer than the full size with wrinles lines reduced much more.
