Landscape Digital Photography Hints - The best way to Take Great Photographs
If you're have a digital compact and like the majority of camera owners, this is your camera's time to shine. For serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the noticeable camera selection, however in regards to landscapes, compact cameras rule only because they provide a much better depth of field. Follow these strategies and all you have to do to get some great landscape photos is to set your compact to landscape mode.
Remember one of the most crucial keys to taking good photos is the quality of light.
For lighting that's soft, even and has a touch of warmth, take your landscape photographs during the Golden Hours: the first hour after dawn and the last hour before sundown (unless you are taking sunset pictures.

Under an overcast sky, shoot for intensified colors and dimmed highlights.
For dramatic shadows, shoot under a cloudy sky.
Enhance the qualify of your image and add play by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for instance, red and golden fall leafed trees against a blue sky that is strong.
To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.
The next most significant element of any good picture is composition. Here are a few composition strategies for perfect landscape photographs.
Compose your landscape picture so the horizon seems straight. Creative, entertaining angles have their place in photography, but not when you're taking a horizon.
Fill two thirds of your frame with all the topic of most interest, whether it be an interesting foreground or a remarkable sky.
Look for lines. These could be anything from river or the obvious road to a shadow running along sand dunes. If your image has lines, try framing your photo so the major lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, for example, a road winding its way to the mountains which are the subject of your photograph.

Frame the composition using a point of interest in the foreground. This focal point might be a road or alternative line as stated previously, a tree, man, animal, house, etc. The focal point won't be the principal theme (the landscape is),but it adds depth, draws the audience into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, thus engaging the audience more with your photograph. Simply speaking, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and much more enjoyable to view.
Look out for mess. In a landscape photograph, mess might be a stack of branches or something such as power line overhead or an airplane or rubbish can on the ground. Use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it in the event you can not get the shot you desire without the jumble.
That's it! There's always more to learn with photography, but just by following the tips above you can begin shooting extremely great images of your favorite landscapes.
