Thanks for your reply. I thought all avatar images were a standard size thumbnail on the front page of ports and for all the listings on MM...didn't know you could make them larger (except on the page below your introduction and above the tags). How do you do that? The expanded size of the image is 600x900 pixels, which is pretty large. Maybe you meant, because "all" avatar images on MM listings are universally small, by my choosing to use sepia like tones in this avatar, that, it doesn't draw enough attention...then I fully understand. I guess I was banking on the "less is more" theory...lol. Thanks again for taking the tiime! I change my avatar about once a week anyway, just to keep my port active and to appeal to different eyes. Thanks.
the tone you gave to the image is not letting it pop, you have good lighting giving the body nice muscle detail, if you have some PS skills,try adding something to the background while keeping the image in the same Environment, see below just a sample,
