How to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Edge
It's all about the eye for beauty I concur, but he/she has to keep in mind particular parameters in order to get the best of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters play an essential part in the resultant picture and are very critical. Aside from colours and backgrounds, both of which I have already discussed, lights also play an important role in photography. And one must always remember with the greatest of light and that landscape photography appears best when one uses the finest of colors.
I've commonly seen that pictures that win contests are often the ones that make fascinating utilization 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 the impact of backlighting and side. Particular angles of light lend an extraordinary effect to even a normal landscape; keep an eye for those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer would be to exploit on these angles. Be aware to snatch away every good light in every great angle potential. Believe it or not, even a plain tree shot in angle and a dazzling light can seem celestial. Use light to define your photos.

Lighting effects in landscape pictures are crucial not only because they bring in a sense of brightness, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the best in a landscape. The angle of light beams flashing through windows, a sliver of gold light bouncing off the sea, creeping upon mountain faces or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Naturally, don't miss the early hours of the morning while dawn, late day and the point of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken during this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for incredible landscape photos, take that extra step towards it t exploit the power of light and you can guarantee yourself fruitful results.
