And the winner is….

A tie!

I took 2650 photos!!

Yeah, burst mode is great – except you accidentally take a shit-load of photos. (Shit-load of course being a technical term.)

So who won the great guessing contest?

We had a tie. Both guessed 2000 photos.

Hubman and Ourchangingviews

1067 photos.
Because I did not use a telephoto, I had to crop every fucking picture. 
I joked one day that I should have had a contest as to how many photos were of Domenico. I had about 250 of him.  
I started deleting ones that were not really anything different because, well, when you stand in one place on the track, you tend to get the same shot over and over again.  This is how I was able to get rid of so many.  Also, while trying to get the camera settings right on day one, I had to toss about 1000 photos for various reasons – mostly because they were out of focus.  
Also, I learned that if you are trying to capture something specific, you will likely take photos of only the people doing those specific things.  I started being able to recognize the motos without even zooming into the shot because I had seen them so many times in other shots.  
I learned some cool tricks with Lightroom.  If only this article had shown up earlier as it was a lifesaver after I found.  Copy is my friend.
Overall, I’m pretty damn happy with my shots.  There are some things I would do differently in the editing, so I may still tweak them later. We’ll see.  I need to look at something else for a while.
Here are some of them:
