Brown also eludes to the fact that professional photographers (and lets say advanced amateurs or advanced photographers as well) do not take perfect shots every time...very true, however these have an idea of what makes a good image and decide which shots to show the world or their clients. Thats the editing portion, we are speaking purely on the exposure portion of photography. Focus gets missed, exposures get blown...but they hit the waste basket when previewing the shots.

Photo enthusiasts should strive to get the best exposure possible when taking the shot. "Hows the composition, do I want that pole coming out of her head or should I ask her to move 8" to the right".."Oh look, at f/4 my entire subject may not be in focus...let me check that". I am trying to simply generate thought before and during the exposure.

Someone showed me a shot today that was of a gravestone or monument of some sort. It had a few things that generally do not appeal to ME in photographs, however I found this particular shot very pleasant to look at. There are no steadfast rules, only guides which the better you hone your skills at the basics the more you will find you can break these guides and still walk away with an image that both you as the photographer are happy with and others like when they look at it as well.
Well sport photography, concert photography, certain low light situations, and a few other situations usually require burst mode to get a one good shot out of a couple. Some times when I shoot certain events I end up with 100-200 photos from about an hour with about 1/5th of them being usable.
