I can't find any positive indication that you posted a photo in the February thread. There's absolutely no indication that it was either soft deleted or hard deleted.
There's nothing showing in your record that would indicate that you posted anywhere in the contest forum.
There's no record of any action by either you or a mod in any of the logs I can access.
Are you sure that you posted your photo to TFL and not THR?
