    I basically "know" what I am getting in a sense. Whether it will be any good is another story. In the past, any truly "good" photos were accidents; I always captured the image/subject I intended to, just usually not how I wanted it. I'm not good with light or composing, so most of what I take are "boring" snapshots; I get the subject I want, but I really don't know how to make it interesting.

    I'm getting better, though.

    Usually I know when I have a good composition that will make a satisfying photograph. If I worked my exposure out right, and if, as Vinny said, unexpected scratches and other negative defects do not appear, I will be able to produce a satisfying print.

    Well said... I often find that what motivated me to expose, in the first place, can change as I start printing. The time between exposure and printing allows me to approach the negative unhindered by a preconceived notion of the final result. Like Bob, I also consider this a huge plus.

    On a few occasions shooting gigs I knew I had something special and couldn't wait to develop that roll to confirm my beliefs. A certain body shape or facial expression or movement that I was anticipating and got the timing right. Perhaps 10 or 12 times in shooting thousands of images. Mostly my feeling was "not quite there" and I haven't been positively surprised often. A bit disappointed often, yes!
