I would say the one you have now is your best bet. Much more appealing IMO

The darkness of the shot means I would most likely pass over. I do like your port. The camera loves you. You have a couple others in particular that IMO would be much better as an avatar

thanks for stopping by.......good luck!

Probably not. You have a couple others in your port that IMO would draw more traffic

Probably not. Flat and not much color. Plus the horizontal orientation hurts that shot as an avatar

I do love the shot. 50-60% yes. The camera loves you, and I think there are perhaps a couple others in your port that may work better.

Good luck!

It is a bit flat Tamasha. Not sure if it would stand out enough. IMHO, these are the best for an avatar and will most likely get you the most looks out of what you have available:

The dark may hurt you, but the contrast is good. Probably yes

you are good to use one with a bright color. But I agree that a more "striking" one will do you well

Not a lot of pop to the shot.....also try to find a vertical one if you have it available.......so, probably not

Your eyes and face are gorgeous. Your hair also does you well......but.....they are kind of small in the avatar and there are no brighter colors to make it stand out. As of right now I would say 50-55% yes

Great figure and perfect contrast. You have also mastered the vertical shot with this, which really helps. In the end I will say "yes"

The largest problem with this shot is that you are to far away. I can see that you have very nice legs, which might rescue you. Right now I would say 50/50
