probably yes, but the print gets in the way as bit too much which may cause me to pass you over

honestly? I like it......very much. But as an avi perhaps just a bit closer cropping to make her stand out just a bit better. but the answer is probably yes

Look at mine please. I have not changed it in several weeks.

It is not bad by any means.....but IMO lacks the pop that will get my attention. I think these would be a bit better and I would notice them better

perhaps crop it in a bit closer to if use as an avatar so she stands out a bit better

No.
Why?
Well, it isn't a bad shot. And you are pretty. But there are thousands of models on MM that have so-so shots who are pretty as avatars. And I am not going to weed through them all obviously, so only the ones whose avatars have "pop" are the ones that catch my eye.

Do you have those shots? Yes. 2 of them......well, actually one will make me want to look at your port.

Not only does this have some eye-popping cleavage, but even more important it screams BOLD.....CONFIDENT......I AM THE ONE YOU ARE LOOKING FOR!! And while it screams those things you are standing there and in control. THAT is the type of shot that will make me want to see more of your port. IMO that is the shot that should be your avatar for today if you want to get noticed.

Good luck!!

Hmmmm. she is pretty, and she has pretty eyes, but as the photo in your avatar stands right now I would probably pass it over and not notice it. Either redo the photo to make it a bit brighter and pop her eyes more, or use this photo:
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pi … 4#29305574

It is brighter and so I will naturally see it more readily. But also her eyes are popped and there is a hint of mystery to the shot

while I believe there are other artworks in your port that would make a better avatar, the creativity of yours made me want to look. However, if I was in a hurry (as I often am) and just skimming quickly, I would probably not even see yours.

However I did look at your port because I am curious and want to see your creativity and my eyes just about popped out. You body is simply GORGEOUS AND AMAZING!!! Fabulous work and I will be back soon to see more!
