Hold lower on the house and find a lens that will bring out the contrast. What glasses do you wear? I am thinking maybe the ColorMag stuff.

What lenses have you used?

A very light Orange or Gold is what I have found to work best in heavy overcast.

I just bombed the first round of a shoot last week fromhaving too dark a lens. Lesson learned.

Nobody sees as well in dim light as they do otherwise. The answer appears to be that your eyes require more light than they used to to see in dim light and ANY colored lens reduces total amount of light you get. Changing the wavelength of the light you receive or changing the contrast in colors doesn't increase the light you get to use. Either increase the amount of light coming into your eyes or accept the fact that you can't see as well as you used to. One tip... either don't wear a baseball cap on dim days or turn it around with the bill in the back. The bill creates a dark area in front of your eyes.
