probably not, and I'll tell you why

The subject I like......a lot! But in the avi the subject is just part of the photo, instead of being THE photo. So IMO if you crop in on her a bit more then I would more likely notice her and perhaps give me pause to want to see more of your work.........but as it is now I would most likely pass over

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Personally I like this the best:

Red always catches the eye more readily. So that is one of the primary reasons. If you do choose this, make sure to crop the avi into the vertical orientation. It will put more emphasis on your subject.

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

The horizontal orientation and lack of color both hurt this as an avatar. It is a good shot, just not a good selection as avi..........IMO you have others that will get you much more attention

Great legs!! The only problem is they are cut off in the avi......that might give me pause. I will say 50/50........if your legs weren't cut off I would say yes

Thanks. I've always admired your work.

Dunno how large an area you consider local, but I shot Tiffany from Peoria and Michelle from Moline (as well as a couple of St. Louis models) last week. Second and third shoots with Michelle and eighth with Tif. I've added 1-2 photos of Tif, and I'm working on Michelle, so there will be a few more of each soon.

Excellent work. I have corresponded with Tiffany before a few times because we are both in the 911 business. She looks so versatile and professional. You can officially put me down as envious  :-)

yes I am. And honestly, probably not. I just can't see the model that well. Perhaps a closer crop would help

Hello Charlette. Well, I so much love your beauty. Your facial structure and eyes are magnificent. But the problem is you have very few shots that show off that beauty.......that is why so far you don't have a shot that would make me want to see more of your port
