Ben; I rate all my images from imported (zero) to 5... A one is blah... A two has potential but isn't good enough to waste time on... A three is worth some effort, but most likely not a wall hanger... A four is a definite keeper that deserves as much time and effect needed to draw out it's potential... Fives are ready to print or size & display on the web... After rating I delete all zero - two's... I work on the fours only, saving the threes for a later date... All adjustments are made on separate layers (copies) and stacked in a collapsed state... My wife has to give me the, "oh my God I love it," or I keep working or ask here for help... On the images posted I would give them 2 / 3 rating... Your likes / dislikes will differ from mine... Only you have the final say, nobody else...Jim
Good practice, I need to do something like it. I do have a higher standard for wall hangers than for what I post on the web however. I did get an impression from your wording that an image needs to be pretty good to show on the web.
The way I see it is that less than 1% will become wall hangers (only have room for a dozen anyway but I do change them out. For web I will show lesser stuff for various reasons and also because the web degrades an image so badly that it hardly matters. Of course I might show the occasional wall hanger, which often enough gets panned. But I mostly show stuff that might be wall hangers in more dramatic light, or others just for subject/compostional learning.
On your scale, I would say 2/3 is a very honest assessment.
