I've updated the title btw with a little warning as I remember that some members on the old forum were a little upset about the graphic content.

Err, aren't most photographs graphic?  Perhaps disturbing...  ;)

I'm not sure what anyone would expect going into a thread titled "Death and Decay".  I am always amazed at the childishness that adults can put on display.  Requiring other people to label things so that you don't have to make informed (in this case, by the very title) decisions on your own is quite childish.  But this is not my forum, so I will not protest keeping the children happy.

Jan, interesting image.  Though I feel like the selective color is seperated too abruptly from the b/w and detracts from the image.

Peter, harrowing image.  Wish the feet weren't cropped, but a minor quibble.  I'm surprised to see it hollowed out, I've never seen anything like that.

Maybe make it 'explicit'... like in 'explicit death & corpse decay. Seems to be common (political correct) sense.
For those who need guidance to stay away from something they personally or culturally avoid.

I'd read 'graphic' more like in 'graphic novel',- which may be related to English not being my mother language.

Interesting, if you type "graphic images" in Google you get very colourful computer generated images but if you type "warning graphic images" you get some very disturbing content. If you type "explicit images" some nudity shows up but nothing in line with the the images posted here.

Anyway, we should be fine but as mentioned I got some complaint last time my "Death by DOF" image was posted in the old forum. Just wanted to prevent such response but in all honesty putting warning in titles usually attracts more attention :)

You could announce the toad as "Nude Toad (Warning: Graphic)", for example.:D

I do remember that toad. It was - should we say - compressed. The reason for its compressed state can be seen in my concurrent UV shot, posted here (I was testing a Peleng 8 mm for UV, which didn't work very well by the way),

The rib cage is what remains of an European Elk ... A wide-angle lens and a clothes-pin (for your nose) are useful accessories.
