First of all, you have great photos that make you look approachable but intriguing, as well as cute and intelligent. Re eye contact, yeah, that's why the Mona Lisa is such a forgettable picture.

As for the rest, if someone's posing with a dog (and that's much more likely than any other animal), I know immediately I'm not interested in him/her. I will say I'm not big on the outdoors/travel shots, simply because the person's face tends to be tiny, and I want to see her/him, not the beautiful sunset or whatever. Those should go under the alternate photos section, with a close-up for the main shot.

(This is coming from someone who still uses a '05 shot you took because most photos don't capture me. Also, I'm not even looking at OKC these days, so this is just what I remember.)
