Oh I dunno, it depends on what you are looking for. I am pretty sure that most people don't think they are going to be the next Martin Parr and are happy with making money from photography and doing something that they enjoy for a living. I don't think posting on flickr or sites like this would be a shortcut to getting famous or noticed anyway. Seems to me the route to getting noticed by anyone is the Uni route where you meet visiting lecturers like Martin Parr, do work experience with Magnum and Reuters etc.. I know that uni courses invite along agents to final shows and lots of students ' make it ' as a result of that. One famous one was an artist called Jenny Saville who had her final show snapped up by Saatchi and was commisioned by them for a major work.
As for the quality of work on here, you only have to look at the photographer of the year shortlists where some astounding work has made it through.
