My Photo Editor Mind - Watch those backgrounds please

I was recently judging a contest, going through the images, and was amazed how many people don’t seem to pay attention to the backgrounds in their images. Distracting, distracting, distracting. I think you get my point. I know, sometimes it’s a fleeting moment and you grab the shot, but if you are in a position where you are waiting for a moment, take a look around your frame, move, and then move again. You are working hard for that image, so take that extra step to make it exceptional.
