I agree with the popular spot objection, I have my own group mostly at night so don't have to worry about where the sun is.
I looked at some others accepted at that location and find none with nose shadowed so I guess the rejection is standard. I have my own there without the nose shadowed and mid afternoon sun but what would be the purpose, so I went with late light. Not to overdo it but long shadows contrast with sun on the power and for me, last light adds tension.

As far as perfect light, 3 in the afternoon.???????

Appreciate your comment, hope others join in and we can revive the forum a bit.
