Thanks for looking guys. This one came out very well :)

Oh, and to be unambiguous, I'm both the maker and seller for the above puzzle.

Nice. The photos seem very hard to see properly. Always nice to have some crisp photos. You'll get a better hit rate too.

I'll try to see if I can get some better ones, I don't have a great quality camera :(

Thanks for the tip though!

Thanks for the good word on the look.

As for profit, if it sells for $50, I'll have made $3.50 an hour net making it, but I do enjoy it so that's all right. Cutting the stickers is by far the most tedious part, that took 2 hours in and of itself!

You might be trying to get too close to the puzzle with your camera. It may have a minimum focal distance of maybe 2 feet. Might be worth going with the highest resolution possible and getting further back from the subject.

I think you're right, Wayne. The background looks considerably clearer than the puzzle.
