I will start the thousand words with three (3) of my own.
“Could be better”
You can add yours below, but please refrain from using below-the-belt or invective language against Ara. After all, she was not the one responsible for transmitting the JPEG file.
My objective is to hopefully reach the person/s at BPCI who sent the same to MUO. After reading our comments, he/she can seriously consider providing a different photo. I have a feeling the one above won’t be removed from the website anymore, but a more impressive shot or two will help balance things.
P.S. Just so you know my clear stand on the photo above, I want something that grabs the viewer in the throat right away. This is not the website where images placed are the type that would grow on you first before seeing beauty in the same. Whenever the contestants page is accessed by random visitors, the last thing in his/her mind is to linger on one. There has to be an instant capture of interest. 😉
