Yes it is and it also worth clicking on ...

However, I noticed that you reply below the pic comments. I am not sure that people read those. Same as with the forums, there is no notification of new entries ..

Yes I like it as a profile picture.  I also think this one:

Nope.  It's a glamour photo, so should be done without a bra.  Then I would check your port.

It does not scream for my attention, but it does ask for it nicely.

I would say it works well enough, though sometimes you have to be over the top exciting to get any attention on MM.

I think it is a strong portrait that works. I would click it - indeed I have.
There are a lot worse avatars out there.

Ultimately you need more than just a good avatar to get attention. But that is another story as I am sure you know.

all the best

I would be drawn in more by this image; it has the look and feel of a llama photo
Not saying everything is perfect but selecting from what your portfolio has to offer

In this your shoulders are too high thus shortening your neck, plus your head is tilted down, eyes are dark with our life
Head and shoulder are too square to camera

Happy New Year

Just being honest...but if I imagine opening the main page and seeing that avi I really wouldn't even notice it.  It's not a bad image and you have a nice look, but it just doesn't have that "I what to see more" appeal.

Didn't instantly grab my attention. The shot style to me is wrong by the inclusion of the bra.

Yes it would catch my eye,   I would have prefered less shadow on face,,  But it is good and I would have look further,  IF  you were not so far away..

What you should do is put a 50 mile search of all the models in your area and see how you compare to the other profile pics in your area.
