I`ve regretted uploading one or two over the years either because they weren`t good enough or went a little too far. rarely for this competition. I did put one on here recently I took down pretty swiftly but left in a facebook group to get the reaction it did to make a point about other images featuring there. It was a shot of a mouse caught dead in a trap that had eluded all humane efforts to capture it ( and our cat ) for 48 hours. I took it to prove to my sleeping wife that I had finally caught it as i`d been caught out for bluffing previously when failing to get another and it reappeared. I made sure it was well taken with creative depth of field in the lighting available and put it in a group I`m on in facebook. I had seen increasing numbers of street photos taken of the increasing number of beggers in town some of which I found offensive and insulting but which garnered very positive comments for being "gritty and hard hitting". I`d suggested they were invasive and more peeping tom and expressed a hope that they had rewarded "models" well to be given lectures on how they would spend any money / rights of photographer on public streets. So my mouse picture went up with me determining that if it got negative comments by people I liked / respected and had offended them I might take it down but I`d see. After 2 likes and 2 dislikes + one comment by an unknown to me "animal lover" who expressed disapproval it was taken down seemingly.  I say seemingly as an hour or so later I went to remove it from the group after 2nd thoughts to find that a group  moderator had wiped it after " a complaint and finding it distasteful". I said i`d found some of  the images distasteful and asked for them to be removed to be refused. I started a discussion asking about censorship and after getting a fair bit of grief finally called time on it saying I found it odd that dead vermin garnered a more sympathetic response seemingly than a poor person down on their luck in the streets. I got a couple of private messages of support and a handful of public supporters but was largely condemned as a killer. Interesting world social media. I put it on here for a very short time when I was getting the grief to see if there was another debate but took it down very quickly as it I accept it was poor taste and here wasn`t where I wanted to make the point. I must admit I got most angry with one guy who told me the picture was " bland, offensive and not even well executed technically" ! I responded that it might be sick and distasteful but in the given light and circumstances it was one of my better pieces of work technically and would they like me to repost to discuss technical merits but the answer was no  :).

I very nearly entered a different photo. I uploaded it before removed it. I like the photo but wasn't comfortable displaying it - after much consideration. Does anyone else ever have this dilemma?

Not really, to be honest - mind you there are some really rubbish ones I look at now and say under my breath 'what was I thinking?'

The only reason I wouldn't post a picture up would be if the person (assuming it was a person) didn't want me to or it was personal at the time.

I must apologise too. When I looked back I realised that it was in fact you I had asked the question, so then it became apparent that you were answering, not asking, if that makes any sense?

They do, but mine's dead and the replacement I ordered did not have a long enough lead to reach my motherboard - it seems the standard length of connecting lead is now half what it was when I built my PC. Might look for a USB plug in one on eBay.

Had a look on eBay, could only find one that reads SM cards and it was a bit pricey (£9.95). But I remembered that my daughter has an unused USB reader in her room somewhere, and after a suitable rummage and removing the layers of dust I found it, it had as slot for SM cards (although very little else, it's pretty old) and tried it, and it worked.  :)

You of little faith.  ???

Any connecters should still work as there are no moving parts to go wrong.  :tup:

Sorry - shouldn't have been a ? :)  I've stacked since - most notably in Scotland when I was taking some shots near Inverness and realised the Northern Lights were dancing. Couldn't see the colour with the naked eye, but the camera did.

That was a single long exposure?

Mine was approx 40-50 photos stacked together.
