    i used to always think i sucked cause i only got about 5-10% keepers that i would consider keeping but now after i hear it from a pro's mouth i don't feel bad anymore.

    i had one of these moments when i heard that....


    and everything began to become clear to me!

    but that doesn't stop me from trying to salvage a crappy pic now and then....LOL!
    That's what I think too. I try really hard to take good pictures but it seems that I miss something in a lot of shots. Wrong ISO, slow shutter, spot metering instead of matrix, wrong angle, etc. I was really starting to wonder if I was ever going to be any good.

    yeah the feeling sucks. now if i get 10% i'm happy!
    i've got about 1k shots of my son and so far only processed less than 100 that i would consider keeping!

    i think we are kinda stuck in the film mentality that we are wasting our roll of 24 or 36 and only getting a few keepers. digital only limits us to the size of our memory card so we tend to be trigger happy taking way more than film rolls but yet feel we need a good keeper rate as if we are only limited to 24 or 36 pics in a roll.

    That would be a huge thread. I think it should be limited to 10 pics per person per day.

    nope no HDR. i exposed for the sky. it is quite a significant crop too as the donkey was quite far away.

    is that a military chopper or a coast guard chopper?

    The photo was taken from Treasure Island which has a Navy and Coast Guard base. It's likely Navy because the Coast Guard helicopters are red and white.

    So, I'm going to borrow one more of Don's daily photo posts and ...

    Here's a composit stitched before/after photo:

    I didn't even notice the bee in flight until I looked at my shots at home. These bees are tiny about a quarter of an inch or so.
