The way to Make a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Advantage
It is all about the eye for beauty I agree, but he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters in order to get the very best of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are extremely crucial and play an essential part in the resulting picture. Apart from colours and backgrounds, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an important role in photography. And one must always remember with the best of light and that landscape photography looks best when one uses the finest of colours.
I have commonly seen that photographs that win competitions are frequently the ones which make fascinating use of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through the trees or windows, elaborate long shadows as well as the impact of backlighting and side through clouds, sparkling light. Particular angles of light lend an incredible effect to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer will be to harness 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 a dazzling light and angle can look divine. Use light to define your pictures.

Lighting effects in landscape images are crucial not only because they bring in a feeling of luminosity, but also, because sensational lighting can bring out the finest in a landscape. The angle of light rays 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.
Needless to say, do not miss the wee hours of late day the morning while dawn and also the brink of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken in this time gets magically enhanced. Literally!
