    What about Magnum? I see that you added stock photo sites to your list but not the strongest, most accomplished photo-journalism co-op in the world.

    There is another page I would recommend for future consideration.
    How to Photograph Your Baby. http://www.facebook.com/how.to.photograph.your.baby The site is run by Nick Kelsh. I stumbled upon this page through a friend. He allow people to post pictures to him which he then shows them ways to make their picture even better with step by step tips. He also does a weekly tutorial that he calls the Nick Kelsh Radio Show. It is geared towards the armature photographer with lots of digital editing tips.
