Changing
I hate to say this, because I know how it's going to be taken. But, I wish people wouldn't crop my photographs, because in a lot of cases, it either changes the positioning of the caption underneath it where it's linked to an article I wrote, or, as in this case, removes the background distractions that I was using this photograph to illustrate. I'm trying to find a nice way say this, so that it's not taken wrong.

Moved Back
I changed my mind. This could be used as a perfect example of how background distractions like this should be avoided in pictures that people post here.

Frassed
Frassed because of the background distractions.
