How to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Edge
It's about the eye for beauty I agree, but he/she has to keep in mind certain parameters to be able to get the very best of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are extremely vital and play an important role in the resulting picture. Apart from backgrounds and colours, each of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an important part in photography. And one must always keep in mind with the very best of light and that landscape photography seems best when one uses the best of colors.
I've frequently 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 as well as the effect of side and backlighting. An incredible effect is lent by certain angles of light to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. The art of a landscape photographer would be to harness 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, even a plain tree shot in angle and a dazzling light can seem heavenly. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape images are crucial not only because they bring in a feeling of luminosity, 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 shining the sand up, bouncing off the sea or creeping upon mountain faces! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Naturally, don't miss the wee hours of the morning while sunrise, late afternoon and the brink of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken in this time gets magically improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are looking for amazing landscape photos, take that additional step towards it t harness the power of light and you may ensure yourself fruitful results.
