Quality of light

"Quality of light"...A topic we used to discuss with our drawing teachers back at school. There was one life drawing teacher who insisted on having a particular room on the third floor because its skylights allowed natural light to come in and illuminate the models. Every morning when I enter my garage space, I see this car and think of that classroom with its natural light filtering in.
This particular day was more overcast than most, so there is a bit less illuminaton than usual.

Thats cool just having a little bit of light filtering through, and especially when it's no overcast and you've got dust. Looks really cool.

That's really nice, Ted--
Subtlety of light is difficult to catch, but it certainly adds wonderful things to an image.
