"Why did you post a photo of a pooped-out basset shot in the worst possible midday lighting?", you ask. (Let's pretend you did.)
Good question, sir (ma'am).
This image reminds me of the summer that I thought had finally arrived until a rather belated chilly and gloomy rain season kicked in, bringing with it an all-encompassing gray.
So, this terrible lighting looks pretty good right about now!
