Passport photo question

I had my picture taken today but was ill inspired and wore a white t-shirt. It's very hard to tell I'm wearing anything because of the white shirt/white background.

Should I have my picture retaken before submitting my application? The pictures are the correct 2"x2" format.

Didn't use the beautiful photos I took of my stepdaughter anyway, used their own terrible photos they took of her at her biometrics. Then used a cheap ink jet printer on plain paper on her certificate, you know how that looks. But it worked for her to get her US Passport, then we buried her certificate. Also made a big deal about her printing her name on the left margin on my photos, but still never used those.

After subjecting our 3-month old daughter to an idiot photographer (whose fuzzy, crooked, soft-non-focus photo was nevertheless accepted by State Dept.), I have sworn to only use E-Passport-Photo. It's free. You upload your own digital photo, size it, and in return you get a 4x6-sized jpeg file containing four passport-sized photos you can take to CVS/Rite Aid/Walgreens to print for twenty cents.

Thank you all for your suggestions! I have taken epassportphoto into consideration for validation purposes. I believe my latest pic will do just fine (my ears show light shadows but I don't think it's a big problem).

I get six passport photos on a 4 by 6 inch photo from Walgreens for 19 cents. Just email the photo to them, its there when I go to pick it up. Have a 12" stool, use a hundred watt light bulb in a standard 18" high wall outlet against a white wall. Stand back about 12 feet and use the telephoto to frame what the DOS wants. Say, don't smile, no jewelry, but may take 20 or so shots using a flash with red eye reduction.

USCIS didn't want our photos, but the DOS did, so wasn't a complete waste of time.
