This is very helpful! Thanks for the schematic now I understand!
I've also noticed that you can increase the sensitivity of the LDR. For me a 10k resistor was perfect. The led wasn't on unless it was truly dark. I even added a button to override-if the user wanted to press the button at any time with/without ambient light.
