Really good photographers get about a 25%-50% yield. For me, every picture you see me post 3 go to the recycle bin and 1 is almost good enough, and 1 is good enough. ;) So about 20% for me.

This is an improvement from when I first started with film where it was about 3 out of 36. :eek: My $1200 dSLR investment has saved me about $2000 in film and processing as I am approaching 6000 frames on the D70.

Keep on chugin'. You never know when that gem will come along.
