Originally, I had selected 1142 images from my African Safari (out of 8412 photographs taken). The initial selection was done the day after my return from Tanzania. 2 weeks later, I took another pass over my 1142 selected photographs and trimmed them further. I now have 858 photographs, with 152 of them being of people, lodges, and stores. Leaving me with 706 wildlife photographs.
The 284 photos cut from the original selection were mostly repeats from other photos, very few were cut from a technical or photographic reason.
Overall, I am very happy with the outcome of the trip. My original goal was to have 12 great photographs, and I feel that I got at least 50 awesome shots - enough even for an iPhoto book!
