the subject....you.....is still a bit too distant and small in the photo. So the pop you are looking for is toned down because of that. Crop in tighter to get a better effect. As of now the answer would be no

Subject is kind of small. And little contrast to make it stand out much.......so probably not

I like the work, but the horizontal orientation hurts you. I will say 50/50

I like the shot, but not sure if there is a big enough hook to draw me in. IMO there are others in your port that would serve you better as an avi

Your current avi I would say probably not. The horizontal shots usually do not work as well. My fav for an avi is this:
