There is always another photo to take....

It is true that certain shots will only be really great if all the necessary elements are in place but if you look around you can always find a different shot that will work in the current situation. Light too harsh then do a shot where a strong shadow is a key feature. Sky too boring for a landscape, look around for something smaller to focus on.

f/2.8 is a smaller number than f/22 in the same way that 100 is a smaller number than 20.
