hi Ray, and welcome.

In my opinion the main attraction of APUG is not the galleries, but the very informative forums.
The galleries are open to subscribers only, that's one of the reasons why the regular members don't have any images in the galleries.

Besides that, APUG is not just the post-your-daily-snapshot-here website.
Those who post images are mostly seeking for an honest critique and tips.

Greetings,
G
