I took this photo today and when i got it on the PC I noticed this in the skyin the top right corner above the swings. I wondered if my camera had got a dodgy pixel but itook a few photos just before this and some after and they were all clear. Does any one think my camera may be dodgy ?. There are other photos on my website with plenty of sky on them and they all look OK.Thanks for your help. :-)

First, what camera are you using? Second, from what i can see in the photo, it looks like a plane or something flying in the air. When you look at the picture on your PC, zoom in to 100% and scroll over to the object above the swings. You should be able to see what it is.

Billy, i'm using a Canon powershot A60. I zoomed in on the PC and it looks a bit like a ball with a vapour trail to the right of it and sunlight reflecting off the top. I was worried in case I had a dodgy pixel but I don't know the signs of a dodgy pixel as i'm new to cameras. I only got this as my first ever camera about 2 months ago. :-)

Yes, it's the only one i've seen up to now. On my site there are other photos with lots of sky in them and they are clear. :-)

Well, i have conversed with a friend and i feel it ispossibly a bug, bird, or something else. I have some pics where i thought something was wrong with the camera because of some foreign object, but later find it is some bug, bird, plane, etc. So for now,"I" would ignore it unless it happens again. Hope this helps you,I'm not an "Expert", but i do deal with LOTS of cameras each day. Take care
