    You could always cheat a little, make a cloud exposure and then cwet cut and wet paste it into your print.
    Thank you.

    Perfect light is rare. I think I've seen it about twenty times (it's a little less rare around here), and only twice have I had a camera ready. One is
    HERE.
    The other time I had a little zoom point-and-shoot, and I don't know where that picture is (nor the negative).

    I remember, few years ago, I was walking somewhere just outside of town, and there was this perfect light, like I never saw again. It was a sort of combination of a stormy sky and a warm misty late afternood clear sky, though the sun was still behind the clouds. It gave a sort of a directional softbox-kind-of-soft light comming from one portion of the sky, while the rest of the sky was covered with heavy threatning dark stormy clouds. It was just after the summer storm, and everything was wet, the bushes and trees looked as if they were painted. It gave such a surreal light, like I've never seen before. Even some of my friends who don't give a darn about light and photography commented on it the next day. I was stunned how many people noticed it.

    I didn't have a camera back then or a tripod...

    And I've been sort of waiting to see something like that for a few years now.
    Oh boy, do I ever. A couple of years ago, I was on my way to work during the mid-late fall, which meant I was on the bus during the sunrise. I woke up from my usual bus-ride snooze, and was treated to the most amazing sight I've ever seen. The sun's light had caught the atmosphere in such a way as it just peeked over the horizon to create what looked like a pillar of flame shooting into the sky. I swear, if I'd had a camera with me, I would have said to HELL with work, I was getting that shot, got off the bus, and clicked off as many frames I could to make sure I got a good shot.

    While I have seen the situation happen a couple of times since, but not with the same glory, and, coincidentally enough, every time I was without a camera *grumbles*
