The contents are probably actually " @dandelion2.JPG", because that is what you passed as the parameter to cURL:

> --data-binary " @dandelion2.JPG"

The @filename parameter trick only works if the _first_ character of the binary data is an @ symbol, but you've put it as the second (the first being a space).

That should fix up a small part of your issue, and get it working on the downgraded package, at least.
