My point being that despite me being a not too proficient photographer, I still manage to take some keepers some of the time, where-else a great photographer with the right equipment will take keepers for most of the time.

Taking a lot of photos, and knowing that only a few of them are any good and that most of them suck, is 90% of being a good photographer.

Well, a good friend of mine photographs NHL for our local team. 99.9% of his photos are rejected and the remainders are sold... the 99.9% don't "suck" they just don't capture what the magazines/news sites/papers want so are discarded.
