    Helmut Kohl listening to his Ipod? Hahahahah, yes, brilliant.

    His fingers on the right hand (his left hand) are unnervingly small, but I think it works - it makes him look fatter.
    The other hand doesn't look like it's supposed to be like that, it looks more like a flipper.

    What you could add, just for fun, is a more irregular distribution of light or a more interesting composition. Research what you can make this photo more interesting:
    Geometric shapes of light behind the person?
