I'm importing them now. A usual day's outing for me is probably 50-200 shots.

I also use Lightroom, principally the pick/rejects flags. My usual process is to go through them initially and "reject" the ones that aren't even worse looking at - obviously out of focus, bits of trees, that sorta thing. In this case I'm hoping to end up with 100-200 images at the end of this stage. I'll then go through again, picking the best versions of multiple singe shots (so if I have say, five versions of three red arrows going from left to right I'd pick the best of them and reject the others. I may choose to do some light processing as I do this pass through. I'll then do the final full edit of whatever's left; obviously rejecting any that deserve it. I need to get better at naming and tagging my images.

I've heard the quote before, and I'm also aware of the 10,000 hours to become an expert line.

To my surprise, my LR catalogue's at nearly 28k - but I'm not sure I've put the hours in yet
