Exterior GArage Lights: Need advice (pic)

Any suggestions for size and placement of exterior garage lights would be appreciated. Obvious choice is 3 large lights over each doors, but roof line is so high that anything but the most humongous of lights will be lost. Also, anyone love a particular manufacturer that although high-end is more reasonable $$

What are you trying to accomplish? In other words, what do you want to see at night?

The picture may be misleading but it looks like you are well out into the country and may have a long driveway. If so you may need more than the standard garage light. More details on the layout and lighting needs would help. My first reaction is that some strong luighting is going to be needed including something on a pole.

Isn't that what headlights are for?

If that house is a good distance from the road more lighting that exterior wall mounts and head lights are going to be needed. Not enough is known about the site.
