I've got a web-site (never much liked flickr) I direct people to if they want to see some of my photographs. APUG galleries see my work first though. I value the feedback I get from the other subscribers. I fly an idea, or post not- quite-right prints, and know I'll get some thoughtful responses.
Anybody who visits APUG more than a handful of times a year should cough up a subscription. It is CHEAP! CHEAP! CHEAP! for the immense amounts of information, amusement and support.
If you can't afford a subscription, I wonder how you can afford photography? It is not, as a wise man said, for the faint of wallet.
