It is a great image! That said I don't think it should be your avi though. Your avi should be a closer shot. One that really shows you closer. Definitely keep it in your port though!

When a llama is less then 10% of the image it’s portfolio value is minimal

The more distractions a photo has the less important the llama becomes, interesting building, with broken windows, cool drain pipes, some kind of deconstruction where the brick from below is showing

Your best pose, just wish you were the main element in image

Wish you well

Why not ask the photographer if he would consider cropping in?, with a high quality camera, this should be not problem, but always keep in mind its up to his or her aesthetics.

There's a model in the image? Oh there he is... that tiny little person in the center that you can hardly see...

Not a good avatar!
