Is this too much for a “for sale” picture?

I’m starting to sell some of my stuff on “letgo”and I took these pictures to advertise them in a nice way. Is this too much? I wanted to keep the pictures true to what they actually look like, but also make the embossed lettering easily legible and I did that with the sharpening filter. Any feedback? good or bad welcome thanks.

Probably nit picking here but the Philidelphia Quaker milk bottle does not need a lighter in the picture. You take very clear pictures. Goodluck with the selling.

yes I have found that just a clean background with the bottlein question is the best option. Most people buying bottles just want to be able to see what you have and not fight through clutter or groups of other bottles to figure it out

Some people who do not smoke don't buy from smokers. You know..Smoke free home and all. Just the lighter alone is a red flag and a lost sale. I think you need a picture box. Basically a cardboard box usually white inside and lite up well. One can be made. You tube stould have directions for making one. You have alot of bottles to photograph. It also looks more in my opinion professional.

Well thanks for the info! Yea I don’t blame people not wanting bottles smelling like smoke and all. That’s gross lol. Mine really was just for the candle though I’ve got to pay more attention to the back ground!
