I came in this morning and in good light the picture looks great. I'm very happy and the reactions I've been getting all day have backed that up. So in fact I had basically finished yesterday apart from some minor tweaking. I think that the reason I struggle when the sun is high in the sky is that it tends to bleach out colours. But this type of picture can look good in the right place.
