I like the first/top one best

Definitely number 1. The other two your eyes aren't fully open (which is great if you're giving the bedroom eye to a bunch of hot boys, but less great for looking awake and alert on your book.)

But he did a fabulous job. The light is really terrific. And you do look hot in all of them.

Definitely the first one.

Sandra said...

I have to agree, #1 as well. Though (depending on your site design) on certain pages you might have a header with name, etc., where the longer horizontal of #2 will fit well.

So excited for you!

Cheers,
Sandra

I disagree with everyone. I like the third one. The look on your face captures your personality a bit better than in the other two.

I'm on the bandwagon: #1.

So handsome in all three, but the last one is the best one!!

Hi Eduardo, I dig the middle one only because you are looking at the camera and it's pretty slick. The top one is cool too but you're looking away. Hope this helps.

I like #2! More mystery...

Jory M. Mickelson said...

Number Three.

Matthew said...

I'd say the last one. It has the sense of partaking in a bigger part of history, which, though we're still in the present, you are making! --Can I say convoluted sentence? :)

Molly said...

My immediate reaction was the first. I love the attitude in the second and the third is really nice as well, so any would work!

Suzanne said...

LOVE number 1!

Larry Krone said...

I'm casting an enthusiastic vote for #2!

Simmons B. Buntin said...

I vote for #3, black and white.

Dan said...

I vote for #1. #3 is a close second (yay math!) though, because I appreciate the looking at the camera as opposed to looking off in the distance... All good options, for sure! I just think #1 looks the most natural.

Elisa said...

I vote #3

Thanks Eduardo for linking to my site. Damn, I need to put more images up on it...and will.
Thanks Leslie for the very kind comment.

The first one, Definitely!!!

No. 1.

# 1! No doubt.
