Tips to Stunning Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out correctly it can give results that are astounding. In fact there are so many top photographers who've 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 may be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a beautiful rainbow, a crimson red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or instead guidelines you have to keep in mind when you shoot those pics that are stunning.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major criterion. If you like real good pictures, then you'll need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you are utilizing a point and shoot or a conventional zoom lens this may get troublesome. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus won't be able 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). Then you certainly can certainly use one of the specialized wide angle lenses, in the event that you own a DSLR. A good wide angle is the canon 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you'll be able to use it just with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Only keep in mind you need a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very costly. If you are searching for a cheaper option, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are inexpensive, but the image quality isn't so good. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely essential. The top time for landscape is either dusk or dawn. The natural lighting is just right and provides the very best result. The dilemma with bright day light is that it may produce plenty 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 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 suitable. This will give greater depth to your photos and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly it is a super trick to enhance the appearance of you photographs. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a style that river or this road appears to either leaving or entering the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
