Golden hour - When to take the best photographs

There's just so much Photoshop can do to create that perfect photograph. Here is a photographers trick that will get you off to a great start and happens to be one of my favorite tricks.
Take you photographs either right at dawn or at dusk. You get the best color in the sky and you will be amazed at the warm glows you'll get for your subjects.  You may have heard of this effect called the golden hour.

This photograph my brother took does have a lot of character already. However, when you add the warm glow of the late day sun it changes the whole feeling of the photograph.

The next time you want to take a photograph, consider getting up very early or wait for those last rays of sunlight to create an amazing effect!

This award winning photo was taken by my brother in rural Nebraska.
