I love photography - I feel that photos add a dynamic dimension to articles and discussion forums. It seems that My Lot will promote a users photography if the photos are of very good quality and share an interest with the community.
I believe they still pay for posting pictures. I am not positive. I took a hiatus from here for a while. Hence; I have not posted images in ages. Don't know if I will or not again. Probably but cause I want to not to get paid for it.
