Joe, I think you read too much into what Robert said. I think he just said come back another time when the light is, in his view, better.

And I think his main complaint was the first part of his sentence, which raises the issue of over-processing. But I'm not him, obviously. That's how I read it, and I agree. (Keep in mind that I love the shot as-is and don't care about the RP rejection.)
