OTOH, a photojournalist may very well use no more than 1% of the shots taken on an assignment. A fine art photographer may not do much better. The wildlife photographer almost certainly gets an even lower number of great shots.
++++

Really? 1%. Wow! I don't feel so bad.

Out of a 36 roll, I usually get 1 WOW (good enough to showcase), 3 or 4 honerable mentions (good enough for Aunt Sally to put on her wall), and the rest could be thrown in the trash.

Of course, I keep getting better.
