Landscape Digital Photography Hints - The best way to Shoot Great Pictures
In the event you're like most camera owners and have a digital compact, this is your camera's time to shine. For serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the obvious camera selection, however in regards to landscapes, compact cameras rule since they offer a better depth of field. All you need to do to get some great landscape photos would be to place your compact to landscape mode and follow these strategies.
Recall one of the most important keys to shooting great photos is the quality of light.
For lighting that is soft, even and has a touch of heat, take your landscape photographs during the Golden Hours: the first hour after daybreak and the last hour before sundown (unless you're shooting sunset pictures.

For intensified colours and dim highlights, shoot under an overcast sky.
Under a cloudy sky, shoot for dramatic shadows.
Improve the qualify of your image by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for example, red and gold autumn leafed trees against a blue sky that is powerful and add drama.
To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.
The next most significant element of any picture that is great is composition. Here are some composition strategies for perfect landscape photos.
Compose your landscape picture so the horizon seems straight. Creative, interesting angles have their place in photography, but not when you are shooting a horizon.
Fill two thirds of your frame with the topic of the majority of interest, if it be an interesting foreground or a remarkable sky.
Try to find lines. These could be anything from the clear road or river to a shadow running along sand dunes. In case your image has lines, try framing your picture so that the major lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, a road winding its way to the mountains which are the topic of your photograph, for example.

Frame the composition with a point of interest in the foreground. This focal point could be a road or alternative line as mentioned previously, a tree, individual, animal, house, etc. The focal point won't be the main topic (the landscape is),but it adds depth, draws the audience into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, so engaging the audience longer with your photograph. Simply speaking, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and much more enjoyable to view.
Look out for jumble. In a landscape photograph, litter might be a pile of branches or something such as an airplane or power line overhead 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 desire without the litter.
That's it! There's always a lot more to learn with photography, but only by following the tips above you can start taking extremely good pictures of your favorite landscapes.
