Suggestions to Stunning Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and executed properly it can give results that are astounding. Actually there are really so many top photographers who've brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to truly have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what is landscape photography. Landscape photography is just photography of landscapes. It could be a snow clad a beautiful rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a crimson red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or rather when you take those pics that are beautiful guidelines you should keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important criterion. In case you would like actual great photos, then you'll need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. If you are utilizing a point and shoot or a typical zoom lens, this may get frustrating. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus will not be able to capture the entire landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there isn't much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you certainly can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized, if you have a DSLR. A good wide angle is the principle 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you'll be able to use it just with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Simply keep in mind you are in need of a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are quite expensive. If you're looking for a cheaper choice, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are affordable, but the image quality is not too great. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is very critical. The best time for landscape is either dusk or morning. The natural lighting provides the greatest result and is just right. The issue with bright day light is that it may generate plenty of glare, and can give your photos a washed out appearance. This is often rectified by using a circular polariser. Yet remember that using a CPL will reduce the amount of light entering the sensor by two stops that are around.

3. Get a subject in the foreground: get a subject in the fore ground As I 'd mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds. This boat or anything proper, or might be a tree. This will definitely give greater depth to your pictures and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly it is a superb trick to improve the appearance of you photos. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a manner this road or river seems to either entering or leaving the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
