Suggestions to Beautiful Landscape Photographs
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and implemented properly it can give astounding results. In fact there are so many top photographers that have brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what is landscape photography. Landscape photography is only photography of landscapes. It may be a snow clad a lovely rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a ruby red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or instead when you take those pics that are beautiful guidelines you should keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important criterion. Should you'd like real pictures that are good, then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. This could get troublesome if you're using a point and shoot or a conventional zoom lens. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus will not have the capacity to capture the whole landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there isn't much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Should you own a DSLR, then you certainly can certainly use one of the specialized wide angle lenses. A great wide angle is the rule 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you'll be able to use it just with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Simply keep in mind you are in need of a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very expensive. If you're searching for a cheaper alternative, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are inexpensive, but the image quality is not too great. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is very vital. The top time for landscape is either dawn or twilight. The natural lighting provides the best result and is just correct. The issue with brilliant day light is that it may create a lot of glare, and can give your photos a washed out appearance. This can be rectified by using a circular polariser. However recall that using a CPL will reduce the amount of light entering the sensor by around two stops.

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 anything or boat proper. This make for a better composition and will give greater depth to your pictures.
4. Lastly this really is a superb trick to improve the look of you photographs. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of manner that river or this road appears to either entering or leaving the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
