You are giving the wrong URL I think.
You need to click on the picture in your photo stream, then select share (from above the picture) and click on grab the HTML/BB Code.
Once the dropdown opens, click on the BB Code radio button, copy the whole link and paste that into your forum post. I think there will be a size option somewhere as well...

I suspect you've turned off sharing?

From a Flickr FAQ page:

Quote
Where is the HTML code and photo file link?

The HTML code to embed a photo in a web page that you used to find on the All Sizes page is now only in the Share menu above the photo, to the right of the Actions menu. We now also include BBCode! (standard message board code)

There are a few cases where the code may not be available: 1) If the photo is restricted. 2) If that person has turned off "Share this" or access to original files.
