It looks like it has definitely more light at your part of the world when it is overcast.
:-)
Nice composition.

You mentioned "southern light" and I'm convinced that latitude does have a strong impact on the quality of the light at all times of year. Not just the position of the sun and angle of shadows, but even when the sun is hidden by cloud. I don't know where in Germany you are, but I looked up Berlin and it is at 52N, while I'm at 41.5N. That's quite a difference and indicates you probably are in more northerly light than I have here.

Martina said...

Exactly 50N. 41N would be in fact Rome, Italy. From my point of view your are living in the south, :-).

Carl said...

50N? That's the same as Moose Jaw, Sask., Can. Brrrrrrr.

Since we have the Gulf Stream it's more like Seattle I suppose (from the climatic point of view, not the light ;-)).

The Gulf Stream difference is quite amazing. In northern England, around 54N, the winters are *much* milder than in New England at 41-45N. For someone who spends time on both sides of the pond it could be something to work into a subject. Same light, very different climate, or similar climate and very different light.
