Landscape Pictures Tips - The way to Shoot Great Pictures
In case 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 clear camera choice, since they provide a better depth of field, however when it comes to landscapes, compact cameras rule. All you need to do to get some great landscape pictures is to set your compact to landscape mode and follow these strategies.
Remember one of the very important keys to taking good pictures 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 daybreak and the last hour before sundown (unless you are shooting sunset pictures.

For intensified colours and dimmed highlights, shoot under an overcast sky.
Under a cloudy sky, shoot for spectacular shadows.
Enrich the qualify of your image and add play by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for example, red and gold 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 component of any picture that is good is composition. Below are some composition strategies for perfect landscape photos.
Compose your landscape picture so that the horizon seems straight. Creative, interesting 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 the majority of interest, whether it be a dramatic sky or an interesting foreground.
Look for lines. These could be anything from river or the obvious road to a shadow running along sand dunes. Try framing your picture so that the major lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, for instance, a road winding its way to the mountains which are the subject of your photograph, in case your image has lines.

Frame the composition using a stage of interest in the foreground. This focal point might be alternative line or a road as mentioned previously, a tree, individual, animal, house, etc. The focal point will not be the primary subject (the landscape is),but it adds depth, attracts the viewer into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, so engaging the audience longer with your photograph. In short, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and much more enjoyable to view.
Look out for clutter. In a landscape photograph, mess may be a load of branches or something similar to 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't get the picture you desire without the litter.
That is it! There's always more to learn with photography, but only by following the tips above you can start taking extremely great images of your favorite landscapes.
