Ever have one of these days?
 
Have you ever had one of those days where it seems every photo you take just turns out sharp, crisp, perfect color, exposure and they just seem to jump out at you more? You know what I'm talking about. A lot of days I shoot I look at some of the results and they're just off. Sure you get some great shots, but others just suck and you're thinking "What the hell was my camera doing?".

Today I had one of those nearly perfect days. I'm not sure if it's because it was a crystal clear, dry, warm day or the Camera Gods were just smiling on me. Anyone else?

I only had one of those days, last December 23rd. I have a lot more of the opposite variety however, where I cannot even get a simple wedgie to come out right. With me it's more "What the hell was the photographer thinking?" although my dinky little camera doesn't help too much.

Not me, you lucky California folks! I've had maybe one or two days like that...... since 1971 or so. :roll:

I surely have! From Autumn to Spring (March - October) they're quite common. You could almost guarentee one between May and September. I find that you also need to have that 45' angle of the sun so the train is evenly lit on the front and side.
