That is meaningful in certain ways, but can be problematic in other ways, so kind of thinking about a point source versus a more elongated element or some spread out sense of light as a source of light, but also the sense of it being direct versus it being something that becomes more indirect, and that indirect light has a tendency to be a little bit more useful from an anti-glare standpoint, from a spreading the light around standpoint. The advantage of the direct light is that I get hard shadows. I get an element that is in the bright part and I get an element that is definitely not in the bright part, so I see three dimensionally better with direct light, but often, that hard light and hard shadow actually become problematic for people in terms of being able to see detail on the dark side or problems like that, so there are certain advantages to direct light.
