Re: Constructive suggestions, Thank you.

Great shot Peacefrog, you've always been an inspiration to me.

Well there's low light to contend with during the golden hours but I think it's worth it. A thin layer of clouds in front of the sun can work wonders as well.

This one's very early in the morning, a very weak ray of sunlight lighting up the scene.

Some more close to sun set:

Imqqmi gave very good advice. Getting low does indeed bring you more
into their world and it also helps in getting clean backgrounds.

I’m not quite as big on the “golden hours” but I do agree that
shooting in direct sunlight with the sun high in the sky doesn’t
usually lead to the most appealing results.
