Are they listed in the My Photo Stream album on your iPhone? This will help determine where they are being held up. If they don't show up there, you might want to try a few things like turning Wi-Fi off and on and resetting your iPhone:
Reset: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button together for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

Same here. This has happened several times. I'm not sure what the problem is. I take photos on my iPhone, but they're not listed in the My Photo Strem on my iPhone. Resetting the phone, turning Photo Stream off, etc. do not help.

Similar issue. My wife and I share a photo Stream with my ID on the 4s. I see the photos and her phone doesn't. They show up randomly for her, hours or days later. Restarting doesn't help.

I had the same problem, but I think that I found the problem. The photos I took while the phone was locked and I used the camera-slide-button doesn't show up in my photostream, but when I unlock the phone and take pictures they appear in the photostream.
Maybe that's also the case with you? If you take many pictures, you probably use the camera-slide-to-unlock function a lot?

Count me in. I have a few photos that didnt go to the Photostream, but the photos earlier and later did.
I don;t usually take photos from the lock sceen. Maybe I did that day, but can't remember so.

I tested it and indeed it seems true that photo's taken with a locked iPhone do not show up in the Stream where photo's taken with the phone app when unlocked do show up in the stream.
This is a pain but at least there is a workaround.

Ok, I have to take back my statement as the photo taken with locked screen has also shown up in the stream.

This is a bug. We are not doing anything wrong, its a fault in the IOS7 implementation. The geniuses at Apple have to first acknowledge it, then fix it. In the mean time we, the Apple community, can continue to diagnose and offer clues to Apple. I have seen spotty performance of Photostream ever sine implementing IOS7. Never had a problem with the previous IOS. I have always had troubles with synching iCloud and seeing my Photostream on my Windows PC, (and of course the Apple support blamed MS which my very well be where the fault lies when it comes to viewing iPhone and iPad data on my PC) but in the all Apple world the Photstream worked consistently under IOS6, inconsistently under IOS7.
Imagine the outrage if Microsoft had the same attitude in denying a bug exists and encouraging the user community to discuss possible work arounds with limited information.

I am having the same issue. Some pictures taken with the iphone will move to photostream and others won't. I cannot find any type of workaround (lock/unlock did not make a difference for me). It is very frustrating. I certainly hope that Apple fixes this soon!

Lock/unlock doesn't seem to be it. Pics I took yesterday on my 4s show up on Camera Roll but not on My Photo Stream.

You have to close your camera app before the photos you take show up in photostream. Not too intuitive but I think that worked for me..

Same issue with my 4s and iOS7.04. Some pictures end up in the photo stream folder other do not. I closed all the apps and did a hard reset.
The last one I just tested showed up right away, did not have to close the camera app. Just took two more, and they also showed up, but it took a few minutes. (Also kept the camera app open)
I figured you take a pic on the phone and it goes directly into the camera role and into the photo stream folder, but from the noticeable delay, it must go camera role -> up to the iCloud, then -> back down to the photo stream folder on the phone and to your other devices (for me my PC and iPad).
I guess i need to keep an eye out, and verify that my pictures end up in my Photo Steam folder. At this point, all seems back to normal.

After really watching this for almost two weeks, I tend to agree with kurtkl. If I take a photo from the locked screen they don't seem to move to the stream. But, if I unlock my phone then open the camera, they move to the stream. It is unfortunate since opening the camera from the lock screen is handy when there is a photo opp that needs to be done quickly - and a tough habit to break!
I also agree with Suspended4th. The camera app does have to be closed before they show in the stream on another device.
I certainly hope that Apple fixes this. The handy access from the lock screen doesn't do us much good if they don't move to the stream.
