What percentage are your keepers?

Depends on the genre.

Wildlife - I might take 1000 shots in a morning and only keep 1 or 2...sometimes 0.

Landscape - I often take 20-25 photos and keep 1, so that's a much higher percentage.

Macro - Take wildlife's keeper rate, and divide that by 4. I shoot on a monopod so that I can stay mobile, the insects are out in the wild and moving around freely, plus there are the usual DOF and focusing challenges...it might be a 4000:1 keeper ratio. I love the challenge, though.
