im not trying to troll but i sit on my ass 8 hours a day in photoshop for a living. if you say this is authentic then why do i see iregular blur lines (where the faceplate meets the side) and points where the cutout was made. also why the fake lighting and hue? none of those images line up with any kind of light.

edit: you can shut me up by posting non-enhanced (actual) images.

we did photoshop the xbox into a black background to make it look good. We also added the reflection. It was taken against a wooden background that looked like crap..lol
ill show an original when i get to work in the morning.

not hatin just statin.

word of advice bro you will get a lot more serious bidders/attention if you put the original images with the wood up because that looks real and authentic. when i first looked at the auction my coworkers and i thought it was straight up bs.

just look how funny photoshoped 360s look here

Rash,
i took your advice and added the originals. After looking at it for awhile it does look fake to someone whos good at photoshop and knows its been "chopped"
so maybe that will help
thanks for the input guys

awesome job on the paint by the way.

if you do decide to use photoshop to sell something in the future (which i dont recommend on ebay) use a gradient background to make sure the lighting lines up to where its hitting the product and take your time cutting it out and dont use the burn tool! use levels and curves to put emphasis on the paint and bring out the color..
