Follow these tips and all you need to do to get some excellent landscape photographs would be to place your compact to landscape mode.
Remember one of the most important keys to taking great photos is the characteristic 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 sunset (unless you're shooting sunset images.

For intensified colors and dim highlights, shoot under an overcast sky.
Under a cloudy sky, shoot for spectacular shadows.
Accentuate the qualify of your image and add play by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for instance, red and gold autumn leafed trees against a blue sky that is powerful.
To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.
The next most important component of any picture that is good is composition. Here are some composition strategies for perfect landscape pictures.
Compose your landscape picture so that the horizon seems straight. Creative, entertaining angles have their place in photography, but not when you are shooting a horizon.
Fill two thirds of your frame together with the subject of the majority of interest, whether it be a remarkable sky or an interesting foreground.
Look for lines. These could be anything from river or the clear 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, a road winding its way to the mountains that are the topic of your photograph, for instance.

Frame the composition using a stage of interest in the foreground. This focal point could be other line or a road as stated previously, a tree, individual, animal, house, etc. The focal point won't be the chief theme (the landscape is),but it adds depth, lures the audience into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, thus engaging the audience more with your photograph. In short, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and more enjoyable to view.
Look out for litter. In a landscape photograph, jumble could be something like an airplane or power line overhead or a stack of branches or rubbish can on the ground. Use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it in the event that you can't get the picture you need without the clutter.
That's it! There's always more to learn with photography, but just by following the hints above you can begin taking really great graphics of your favorite landscapes.
