A few days ago I did a search for some new approved images of mine to see if they were in the system yet. They all came up but one. I contacted the good folks at Dreamstime to inquire and was told it had been content filtered (I have my filter on). The image was a 70 year old photograph of a man and woman (my grandfather and my mom) on their farm holding shotguns and some pheasants they had just hunted. They said all images showing dead animals were content filtered. Maybe this could be disturbing to some members of society.
Yet, I have an editorial image on line of a homeless man sleeping on the street in the cold and it has had sales. Socially speaking, this image should be more disturbing to viewers than an antique photograph with some dead birds.
