The best way to Create a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Advantage
It is all about the eye for beauty I concur, but he/she has to keep in mind particular parameters to be able to get the best of the nature, while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are very critical and play an important part in the resulting picture. Aside from colours and backgrounds, both of which I have already discussed, lights also play a crucial part in photography. And one must always remember with the best of light and that landscape photography seems best when one uses the best of colours.
I've commonly seen that photos that win contests in many cases are the ones which make fascinating use of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through clouds, sparkling light through the trees or windows, intricate long shadows and also the effect of side and backlighting. Certain angles of light add an incredible effect to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for those sources. The art of a landscape photographer will be to harness on these angles and use it to his advantage. Be conscious to snatch away every good light in every great angle potential. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in angle and a dazzling light can seem divine. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape images are crucial not only because they bring in a feeling of brightness, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the best in a landscape. The angle of light rays flashing through windows, a sliver of golden light creeping upon mountain faces, bouncing off the sea or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Of course, do not miss the wee hours of the morning while sunrise, late afternoon and the point of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken during this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are looking for incredible landscape photos, take that additional step towards it t use the power of light and you may guarantee yourself profitable results.
