That's not a great picture so difficult to say. Here is a good shot of Württemberg Generalleutnant v. Stein.

Extreme right in Foto 149 was Württemberg Gen Paul v Schaefer, stellvertreter XIII Korps im Krieg.

Foto 150 was Hans v Dittmar. The WVK2 was the tell tale: he was Kmdr of 3 Garde Ulanen Rgt and Prinz Friedrich zu Waldeck Pyrmont was Chef of the regiment.

Cheers

Foto 152 extreme right was Großherzog v Hessen, the Kaiser's first cousin. The owner of the Nachlaß ObLt Ernst Mersmann was a pilot but was in Leibgarde Rgt 117, a Hessen outfit.

Foto 149, in the middle, Prussian Gen was Alfred Heiber. He was former Kmdr of Pi Btl 13 and now stellv Inspk 3 Pi Inspk which was the superior formation of Pi Btl 13.

Not too sure who the two Bavarian gens were. Man partially blocked by v Schaefer could be Otto Schlosser, Gne d Pi 18 and before the war bayr Pi Inspk.
