    I currently have an iPhone 4 and new iPad, and I turned on Photo Stream on both devices in the iCloud settings.

    However, new photos that I take with either device are not copying to Photo Stream.

    I know iCloud is working - I've verified this by testing with Contacts and Notes.

    Is something amiss with Photo Stream or are my expectations on how it works misplaced?

    Make sure you have photostream turned on everywhere... there is a setting under the Photos app (Settings > Photos > Photo Stream > ON)

    and in the iCloud settings
    (Settings > iCloud > Photo Stream > ON)

    and under the Mail, Contacts, Calendars settings
    (Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > (select email account tied to your iCloud account) > Photo Stream > ON)

    Yep - wifi active and connected on both iPhone and iPad.

    Here's an additional question, though - if I take a picture while I'm out and using 3G/4G, should that picture be added to the stream when I reconnect to a wifi source?

    Yes that is correct. It should. Maybe sign out of iCloud and then back in. Not sure where your problem is coming from.
