First off, there is no reason you need to be super-talented to post your pictures. I'm definitely not of the same caliber as those talented individuals, but I still took the time to post some of my cakes, because they might give people help with ideas. I think you should post some of your creations, too.
With regards to pictures for recipes, it's more than just "a few extra keystrokes", because you probably have to download the pix, resize them for upload, etc.. Also, as mentioned by others, what would probably be posted is a completed cake where you really can't tell what the cake layers looked like.
I suspect that if somebody posted a recipe for a yummy chocolate cake and included a picture of this cake iced with a yummy fudge icing, somebody would complain that they didn't include the recipe for the icing.
One other thing--pictures in the recipes section would likely require changes to the back-end code for Cake Central, to allow for this feature.
