Do you save everything or only your best?

Are you the "Photo Editor from hell" for your own portfolio or do you take the easy way out and just "keep everything"?

Do you think that keeping shots that are less than your best dilutes the overall quality of your portfolio?

I ran across a very insightful and interesting discussion of this topic on a photographer's web site recently. On this site she provides her definition of the differences between:
Snapshots
Decorative Art
Fine Art
Commercial Art and
Journalistic Photography

She also talks about "Shooting from the right side of the brain" - getting past the technical aspects of photography and focusing on the creative.

Her lessons are loaded with photo examples of good vs bad composition and how to tell if a photo is "artistic".

Take a look and you may find that you see and edit your shots differently afterwards.
