The way to Make a Great Picture - Part 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 particular parameters to be able to get the best of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are extremely critical and play an essential role in the resulting picture. Aside from colours and backgrounds, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an important role in photography. And one must always keep in mind with the finest of light and that landscape photography appears best when one uses the best of colors.
I have often seen that pictures that win competitions in many cases are the ones which make fascinating use of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through clouds, dazzling light through the trees or windows, elaborate long shadows and also the impact of backlighting and side. Certain angles of light add an extraordinary effect to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for those sources. The art of a landscape photographer is to tap on 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 dazzling light can appear heavenly. Use light to define your photographs.

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