while I like the photo and you are extremely gifted, that shot is just a bit too "busy" to be a sure fire avatar. You have others in your port with will serve much better......such as this:

I do like the shot, and you have some good coloring and lighting. But not sure if the lines/curves are strong enough to really draw me in. If you have something like that then it would be a stronger avi

just a bit dark and drab, which causes it to be passed over for something for something that is less dark and drab

B/W avatars can work, but they generally need to stand out with clean lines and a huge wow factor. Your current avatar does not, and I personally would skip over it without even seeing it because of the lack of color and pop.

IMO this is your best shot for an avi

Thanks I was kind of thinking it was too dark for an avatar.

If you use a mono pic then you need it to be striking in some way. Curves, clean lines, great contrast.....something. This choice for avatar has none of those things.

It isn't bad, but I doubt it will make me want to see more. You have others that IMO would work better

you picked the right color in your present avatar. It is creative and that might make me look. I would say 50/50

Quite honestly I doubt it. It looks way too fake to draw me in. I think there are a couple others in your port that would serve you better

This is by far your best. That is because it is red, which research shows gets the attention more than any other color. Plus it is in the vertical. the sexy tummy also stands out and is a drawing point in and of itself

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/121118/17/50a9890cc1ebb_m.jpg

I will pick this for 2nd. Even though it is not vertical....which usually works best for avatars......the lighting and vivid coloring still gets noticed
