It is a good shot. The color works good for an avi to get attention. this and 2 others are your best bets

60-75% yes

I'm sure I asked before, but I'm also sure my avatar has changed since then.

So go for it.  Again!

Good simple approach. You have defined the beauty in your subject very well.

Probably yes

It shows you have a good tummy and legs......75% yes. IMO your present avi and this shot are your best choices for avi

I like the shot, but as an avi it doesn't grab my attention very well. IMO you have at least 2 other works that would grab my attention much more effectively

Not bad, but IMO not your best for an avi. I will say 50-60% yes

Thanks for asking, and remember, just my opinion. I like this:

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/131203/07/529dfee326d69.jpg

her arm makes a nice border that brings the attention to her lovely face, eyes and lips. Even though this is a bit busier than I think an avi should be, if you crop it in with the avatar controls I think it will work effectively

Thanks for stopping by!!

Not a bad shot, but not your best choice as avi IMO. I believe you have others that would grab my attention more readily

While I very much like the colors and eyes, I am not sure that is enough of a hook to draw me in.

Regrettably, probably not
