"About" Page Coding Issue

For my "About" page, I have on my about.html:

<section> <img src="img/nick.jpg" alt="Photograph of Nick Pettit" class="profile-photo"> </section>

And then on my main.css file I have this:

.profile-photo { display: block; max-width: 150px; margin: 0 auto 30px; border-radius: 100%; }

Yet when I add the ".profile-photo" part, the photo disappears completely. Am I typing something out wrong?

Any other ".something"s that I try to do don't register either. Is there some update in the HTML?

May be you'd have missed to place the <img Src> in your html or else check if typo mistake of image file name,

Everything in the file works, except for that last bit. If I leave out that part with the ".profile-photo" thing, it shows up as the instructors - a big picture in the shape of a square. I've triple checked to make sure mine looks like his, but it still doesn't work.

As for all my coding,

about.html:

I'm just leaving it as his image, about paragraph, and twitter for now, so I can learn how it works to later put in my own. All this works until I add this:

main.css:

/*********************************** PAGE: ABOUT ************************************/

.profile-photo { display: block; max-width: 150px; margin: 0 auto 30px; border-radius: 100%; }

I have other things on there, but they all work fine. It's just this that's giving me an issue.
