The desaturation doesn't give you the best chance. Still I would say 55% yes, as I do indeed like the shot. However, to get your avatar noticed I would say you have a handful of shots that may work better for an avatar

Instagram @creolebell.

The lack of color will most likely not catch my eye. Of the ones in your port I would say this one has the best chance.....simply because of the legs.

Your legs and tummy give you a chance. 60-65% yes

I like your port. I like it alot! You are a fabulous model who has a great look! I doubt your current avi would get my attention. To much background stuff to muddle up the frame, so you don't stand out.

IMO these would make a better avatar for you:

My port is under revision... but I kind of like my avatar.

So, how about it?

Does it make you want to see my port?

I'm sorry but who are you to say if everyone's main picture is good enough or not and why would they care? Your main photo doesn't necessarily make me want to "see more"...

Just another person on here trying to meet people and make connections. Nothing more and nothing less.

If you wish to start a thread such as this then go ahead. No one is stopping you.

I like the shot, but probably a bit too dark in order to get my attention. Of your shots I believe the balloon one would get the most attention

Rachel you are too small in the photo and do not stand out. You have a couple others in your port that would work better to get you noticed

Guess I will replace it after I get the port up to date.

You have a good model to get attention to your port, but the shot is a bit dark and flat. So it won't stand out quite so much. I will go with 50/50

I like it. The darkness of it may cause me to skim over it a bit more readily than a brighter shot, but I think the angles and light highlights will help. I will go with 70% yes

like your work!

I like it very much, but there is a lot of "stuff" in the photo that may keep it from catching my eye. Still the brightness helps. I will say 60% it will catch my eye and therefore get me to look more

Kind of dark lighting so it probably won't stand out. You have others in your port that will stand out much better.

Jesse you have some spectacular talent and creativity! But I cannot see that from your avatar. Truthfully I have no idea what your avatar is. IMO perhaps this or the other female headshot would work a bit better
