I’m four months into my dSLR experience with 8k+ images and I feel like I have some good ones to share. I have never held any images outside of my computer, 3-4 years ago I did some experimenting with Picasa, in order to share some common event pictures among my relatives, but it did not work out for me in a long run.
I want to start storing some of my work on web in order to share it and allow friend to download some images. Please point me into right direction with this. Preferably, free of charge storage. I see a lot of members here post links to their Flickr account. Is this a good solution to start with?

I have been using Zenfolio for several years and I could not be more pleased. It meets all of my needs including serving as online backup, easy sharing of my work with family and friends, and password protection for online viewing if desired. Options relating to access, security, and layout of your personal pages are amazing. You can customize the site to be almost anything you might imagine. And surprisingly, turning the site into your personal online photo sharing web page is very simple and easy. You might want to give it a look. My site is at http://evansphotojournal.zenfolio.com if you want to see an example. I know that there are many similar sites available and I must admit I have only tried Zenfolio. Therefore, consider this recommendation with that in mind.

thanks a lot for your suggestions. Flickr worked for me quite well for the first time, even though i have some confusion with invitations (resolved) and setting up a gallery (still not done, but i do not need it for now).

Flickr doesn't have a gallery system the way you're thinking about it. Flickr "Galleries" are for showing *other* people's Flickr photos - you're the curator, not the photographer. Flickr's set system is the nearest but doesn't have a "portfolio" look. I share more photos on Flickr and like the community there, but for gallery/portfolio type sharing, I prefer 500px.
