from a photojournalist colleague in the UK:

>> You need to see the contact sheets.
>> I've seen a contact sheet of a famous Cartier Bresson shot.
>> A man jumping over a puddle, which would seem to be a good example
>> of the 'decisive' moment but in fact the contact sheet shows
>> 36 attempts at the shot with the subject jumping over, repeatedly
>> until the the shot was in the bag.
