Yes. Excellent quality and great beauty in the model. This tells me your most likely have more beautiful models in your port, which in turn will make me want to see more

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

Thanks for the feedback. I'm sure there are others in my portfolio that can make it stand out too.

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

it was a demon kitty :p

I like the photo very much! It looks to be a bit desaturated, so not sure if it would catch my eye. I will say 50/50 chance. IMO this one will work much better in capturing my.......and everyone else's eye much more readily.

You have good contrast but it is a bit overblown. You have fabulous quality in your port, but this current avi doesn't reflect that. IMO this would get you noticed a lot more and many more port views......at least from me

such a gorgeous shot, but the B/W blends together a bit too much to make it a really good candidate for avi. IMO you have many other works that would get you noticed with a greater percentage.

good work, and I would say 60% yes. The mail problem with this being and avi is the last of either bright color or contrast. Still her blond hair and cleavage carry the shot. But.......wondering if this amazing gem would get even more interest in your port:

no. Lack of bright color, flat image, and horizontal orientation doesn't bode well

sorry, but no. The colors all seem to blend together as there is a lack of contrast. From just looking at the avatar I can't even tell what the photo is of. You do amazing work but your avi does not reflect that IMO

the darkness of the whole photo means it probably would not catch my eye. So the answer is no

It is difficult to see the subject (your bottom) because it is in the background and muddled with other items in the photo. It is a good shot, but not very effective as an avatar
