How to Create a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Advantage
It is about the eye for beauty I agree, but he/she has to keep in mind particular parameters to be able to get the very best of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are extremely critical and play an important part in the resulting picture. Apart from colours and backgrounds, each of which I 've already discussed, lights also play a crucial role in photography. And one must always remember that landscape photography looks best when one uses the best of colours and with the best of light.
I have commonly seen that photographs that win contests are frequently 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 result of backlighting and side. An amazing effect is lent by certain angles of light to even a typical 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 seem divine. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape pictures are critical not only because they bring in a sense of luminosity, but also, because sensational lighting can bring out the best in a landscape. The angle of light rays flashing through windows, a sliver of gold light bouncing off the ocean creeping upon mountain faces or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Naturally, do not miss the early hours of late afternoon the morning while sunrise and also the point of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken during this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for extraordinary landscape photos, take that extra step towards it t harness the power of light and you can ensure yourself fruitful results.
