The best way to Create a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Edge
It is all about the eye for beauty I concur, but he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters in order to get the best of the nature, while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are extremely crucial 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 remember that landscape photography looks best when one uses the best of colors and with the finest of light.
I have frequently 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, sparkling light through the trees or windows, intricate long shadows and also the result of backlighting and side. An incredible effect is lent by certain angles of light to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for those sources. The art of a landscape photographer would be to exploit on these angles and use it to his advantage. Be aware 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 dazzling light can look celestial. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape graphics are crucial not only because they bring in a feeling of brightness, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the best in a landscape. The angle of light rays flashing through windows, a sliver of golden light shining up the sand, bouncing off the ocean or creeping upon mountain faces! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
