Not because the image is mine, but this is what I think is good use of sets.

Not quite, the opinion at OCAL is that uploading in sets is a good thing 
when the images are very similar, like you have one blue flower and

image count.
If you think this is bad, probably we can talk about this on the OCAL 
list (even if some of us are subscribed also here).
