Suggestions to Beautiful Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and implemented properly it can give results that are astounding. Actually there are really so many top photographers who have brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to really have a life of its own. Anyways leaving aside all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is only photography of landscapes. It might be a snow clad a lovely 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 shoot those stunning pics guidelines you should keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important criterion. In case you like real photos that are great, then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. This could get annoying if you're using a typical zoom lens or a point and shoot. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and hence will not manage to capture the whole landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there is not much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you can certainly use one of the specialized wide angle lenses, should you own a DSLR. A great wide angle is the rule 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you can use it only with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Only continue in mind you necessitate a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are quite expensive. If you're searching for a cheaper option, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are affordable, but the image quality is not too good. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite vital. The very best time for landscape is either morning or dusk. The natural lighting is just right and provides the very best result. The problem with brilliant day light is that it will give your photos a washed out appearance, and may produce a lot of glare. This can be rectified by using a circular polariser. However remember that using a CPL will decrease the amount of light entering the sensor by two stops that are around.

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