Just added a new avatar, let me know what you think.  And, while you're poking around, what do you think of the rest of my portfolio?

"Just added a new avatar, let me know what you think."

Frankly, looks pretty snapshot... contrived pose... busy background... composition is not great - model is a small portion of the image (Is the image about her or the gate?).

Just my opinion.

I wonder how it would if you cropped it a little tighter and had the model more off center.
