I can see that it is a bikini......I think. But the horizontal orientation and the rather awkward pose means it doesn't stand out too well. So probably not

she is pretty, but is there enough there to make me want to see more? Sorry, but most likely not

good contrast with high quality. Sexy without being too overt about it.

I did look at your port and you are a fabulous model. Of that there is not doubt. Your current avatar......

the largest problem is that much of your body goes away from the camera. The camera does not shoot in 3D, so we lose much of the impact from this. I would say no to your current avi.....which would be a shame because I enjoyed your artwork

crop the photo in a bit more so you are more at the center of attention. As of right now you are battling the sand and water and background houses. So I would say no

Thank you! Would you mind telling me which picture I should set as my Avi? I know I don't have much but I am still in the process of building my port. Thanks again! Xo

nothing to be afraid of. Your current avi is a bit dark with little contrast. You have a couple others that would work better

Would be interested what you thought of my photography Avi, and which you would prefer out of my portfolio if not the one I currently have up smile

the shot doesn't have much pop. You have a couple others in your port that IMO would be a much better avi

sexy model, but her hair looks a bit too early 90's for my taste. I think that would turn me away. IMO you have one or two excellent shots in your port that would make a very good avatar. And you work is very good!

I like that you think outside the box. If I am interested in seeing a photographer that may bring a different sense of flavor and creativity, then I would say yes

The horizontal orientation generally doesn't work so good as an avatar. It also hurts your chances to be seen.

no

It looks like an eyeball. While I do like your ability to think outside the box in this case, I doubt that this eyeball will make me want to see more of your port

High quality shot of a beautiful model. Very nice work. However the muted colors may not stand out enough. I will say 50/50 on this one
