The way to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Edge
It's all about the eye for beauty I agree, but he/she has to keep in mind certain parameters in order to get the best of the nature, while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are very crucial and play an important part in the resultant picture. Besides colours and backgrounds, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play a crucial role in photography. And one must always keep in mind with the greatest of light and that landscape photography looks best when one uses the finest of colors.
I have commonly seen that pictures that win competitions are frequently the ones that 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, long shadows that are elaborate and the result of side and backlighting. Specific angles of light bring an extraordinary effect to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for those sources. The art of a landscape photographer is always to exploit these angles and use it to his advantage. Be mindful to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in angle and a brilliant light can look heavenly. Use light to define your photos.

The angle of light rays flashing through windows, a sliver of golden light bouncing off the ocean creeping upon mountain faces or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Of course, don't miss the early hours of the morning while dawn, late day and also the brink of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken during this time gets magically enhanced.
