Suggestions to Beautiful Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and implemented properly it can give results that are astounding. In fact there are so many top photographers who have contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to truly have a life of its own. Anyways leaving aside all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is only photography of landscapes. It could be a snow clad a beautiful rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a ruby red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are definite rules or rather guidelines you have to keep in mind when you take those pics that are stunning.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major standard. Then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame, in case you would like real good photos. If you are utilizing a point and shoot or a standard zoom lens, this could get annoying. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and hence won't be able to capture the whole landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there is not much you can do except use the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you certainly can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized, if you own a DSLR. A good 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. Simply continue in mind you require a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very expensive. If you are searching for a cheaper choice, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are inexpensive, but the image quality is not so good. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is very vital. The best time for landscape is either morning or dusk. The natural lighting provides the greatest result and is just right. The dilemma with bright day light is that it will give your photos a washed out look, and may create a lot of glare. This is often rectified 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: get a subject in the fore ground As I 'd mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds. This might be a tree, or boat or anything appropriate. This will give greater depth to your photos and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this is a super trick to enhance the appearance of you photos. Search for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a way this road or river appears to either leaving or entering the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
