    Why don't you start off by explaining what you think is wrong with it.

    Depends on what the photo is for... It's a fine snapshot of your boss at work, I guess.

    If this is supposed to be published somewhere or framed, there's plenty you could do to make it better, aside from just starting over from scratch. Go back and do it again, but this time clear the desk of that giant computer monitor, keyboard, and mouse. Make it look clean and classy. The harsh light on the right side of distracting, and so is the various clutter surrounding him. Especially the colorful small stuff just to the right of him. My eye is also drawn to the red framed art behind him. Basically the entire right side of the image can go then, I guess. :p

    I was kidding ;), pretty sure there's no way to do that, and I think a more interesting angle and taken at a different time of day when light isn't pouring into the office is a good idea.

    Ask him to button the top button, clear off the desk and background flat surfaces and shoot straight on?
