I propose a 32x32 icon size with a 4px graphic border (thus resulting in a 40px square icon). The background is #FFFFAA. (I'm fairly certain people agree with this, so treat this as point one).

I'm thinking of creating a 16 (or 8) color palette with 996633 as the darkest color and a lighter color than the background for the highlight. An example image would be: photo_request6.png Note that I'm not proposing this as a final icon, just as a rough example of the colors. It allows for definition of icon, but also does not stand out too much. Something like Arlen's recent stub icon is easily tweaked into the same colors: color_stub.png (No, that's not a final palette or icon... just a quick and dirty one).

Later...

Okay, I resized, rebordered and recolored all the icons. I went with the new photo and stub icons:

Arlen, when I did the current camera icon, I tried to keep the yellow background and the theme of dark gray silhouette style icons at 64x48. I was worried that notice icons with more prominent colors would overwhelm the page. Do you think head on is better?jw

Shrunk and margined with a contrasting color (picked up from the unselected tabs). Not my favorite, but I figured I'd toss it out.

Shrunk and margined with a complimentary color. Stands out less, I think I might even try a lower contrast version. I think it already looks better than the dark gray original (I also use highlights lighter than the background in this one).

Arlen's original, 40% opacity, shifted a bit toward reddish brown. For an icon of this size, the face on icon is much more recognizable, IMO. — jw

As long as we're rethinking icons, how about photorealism?

Or photo-bordered?

Here is a 32px square stub icon. I'm not sure that 32 is the right size, but it gave me a little bit of border.
