Use light to create a silhouette. The high contrast of a silhouette creates impact and when done properly can focus attention on the subject.

Ramin has deliberately used soft diffused light through a window to great effect:
For fixed subjects find an angle where the light is more favorable or wait til the angle of the light changes – changing the angle of the light can drastically change the image by accentuating a prominent feature.
Geoff has waited until the light has created stark relief with the Opera House Sails:
Wait – if you think the light is great now, it may be better. Light quality changes quickly at the best times so shoot quickly but be patient.
