Hi all members! A and I are about to take a selfie and suddenly B shows up next to us right the moment I press the button to take the selfie. So three of us is in the picture. Can I say it like this in this context?

1. Your presence really messed up the shot.
2. Your presence literally screwed up the picture.

Thanks so much!

A sarcastic response would be "Thanks for photobombing us!"

Steve you have too many words.

1. Your presence really You messed up the shot.
2. Your presence literally You screwed up the picture.

Steve please banish "literally" from your vocabulary!! Along with "basically" they form a useless addition to any sentence.
