New Profile Picture?

Yesterday I received a mysterious package. Upon opening it up, I discovered a set of pictures of myself (and one group shot) from the graduation of my teacher training program in Israel last year. And I thought, hey, these are professional pictures, maybe one of them'd go well as my profile picture.

So far my profile picture has been:

  — a very formal-looking headshot

  — me leaning over with Navit cropped out

  — and a subtle stegosaurus reference

For some other old possibilities, you can see the options at my very first post back when I thought I wasn't going to have a real blog. Ha ha ha. I could not expect the addiction that would follow...

Anyway, here are the new pics:

#1: Speaking

This one reminds me of RYG"B's picture.
That whole sideways mouth-open microphone thing.
And I'm definitely gesturing with at least one hand out of view.

#2: Close

Yeah, it's a portrait shot.
Very zoomed-in.
I hate smiling for cameras.
This one was particularly goofy, as I recall.
Pictures came out pretty good, though.

#3: Out

Another portrait shot.
A bit more zoomed-out.
Looks a little darker, too, at least on my screen.

So, any preferences from the audience?
(or should i just stop being narcissistic and get back to tay-ra?)

The "speaking" picture actually looks like you (unlike some of the ambigous ones, like the one that's on your profile currently).

I agree with MarG.

in that case, hopefully RYGB won't sue me for style infringement ;-)

I don't think so. You're not falling off the edge of your picture. RYGB is.

First picture: seriously startled.

Second picture: serious intellectual, friendly yet intense.

Third picture: evil dude.

What is wrong with being an evil dude. There are some cool perks.

Until your discount henchmen bungle the greatest evil scheme ever and you end up in the clutches of the cleancut-or-angsty superhero-of-the-month.

It doesn't even have to cost much money, maybe apart from the pipe organ and the Persian cat. Oh, right - I forgot the satellites. Those might run into money.
