How to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Advantage
It is all about the eye for beauty I concur, but while one is into landscape photography, he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters in order to get the best of the nature. These parameters play an important part in the resulting picture and are very critical. Besides backgrounds and colours, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play a crucial role in photography. And one must always remember that landscape photography looks best when one uses the best of colors and with the very best of light.
I have frequently seen that photographs that win contests in many cases are the ones which make fascinating usage of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through clouds, dazzling light through the trees or windows, intricate long shadows and also the effect of backlighting and side. Particular angles of light lend an amazing effect to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer will be to harness these angles. Be conscious to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not, even a plain tree shot in angle and a brilliant light can look heavenly. Use light to define your photos.

Lighting effects in landscape graphics are vital not only because they bring in a sense of brightness, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the finest in a landscape. The angle of light beams flashing through windows, a sliver of gold light creeping upon mountain faces, bouncing off the ocean or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Naturally, don't miss the early hours of late day the morning while sunrise and also the point of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken during this time gets magically enhanced. Literally!
