To be honest I don't think friends and family count as the general population. They are generally more polite and will like your photos because it's you that took them rather than on the merits of the photo.

In my experience it is difficult to get them (family, friends, co-workers, etc.) to single out specific photos as particularly good. I often get comments like "They are all good. I couldn't pick a favorite." or "There are so many good ones." Therefore, when a particular photo is singled out, as these were, I pay more attention to it and try to figure out what I did right.
