I agree. Thanks for all of the examples, Brian. It has been very helpful. I will use the window light the best I can, and work at getting a starter light set-up.

The discussion between you and Brooks has been very insightful. Your work, alone, is "encouraging" to us beginners, and your experience shows in your work.

You need a direct reflection on the left side of the glass to some degree IMO. It would look drab and formless without it.
