Actually, I think OP's #1 is a really excellent image - but I completely agree with your position. I am always cognizant of how many shots are left, and always mindful to connect better with the subject and not waste them. If I was basically an editor looking through hours of footage for the 'magic moments', where would I be in the process? I might as well station some hidden cameras on the street.
