I actually like the kind of light you get from an even overcast. There are no shadows, and the colors are very deep. I've heard it disparagingly called oyster light (alas, I couldn't find a better link) and I know few people like it.
Also, this coincides with a meme (via coyotegoth):
1. Stop talking about politics for just a moment or two.
2. Post a reasonably-sized picture in your LJ of something pleasant, such as an adorable kitten, or a fluffy white cloud, or a bottle of booze. Something that has NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICS.
3. Include these instructions, and share the love.
And just as I like oyster light, I also think 640 px wide is a reasonable size. Hah!
