Exactly. I have no arguments with Kent's post. I certainly don't put my camera away when the light isn't perfect. But Spacetrain isn't ready for challenging conditions. He needs to put himself in the best possible situation to succeed and the lighting he's picking right now isn't going to get him there. We all have to start someplace and that someplace for him needs to be late afternoon or early evening, on a day with no clouds filtering the sun.
