Landscape Pictures Hints - The way to Shoot Great Photos
In case 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 choice, but when it comes to landscapes, compact cameras rule only because they offer a better depth of field. All you need to do to get some amazing landscape photographs will be to set your compact to landscape mode and follow these strategies.
Remember one of the most crucial keys to taking good pictures is the characteristic 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 past hour before sundown (unless you're shooting sunset images.

For intensified colors and subdued highlights, shoot under an overcast sky.
Under a cloudy sky, shoot for spectacular shadows.
Enhance the qualify of your image by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for instance, red and golden autumn leafed trees against a blue sky that is strong and add play.
To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.
The next most significant element of any picture that is good is composition. Here are some composition tips for landscape pictures that are perfect.
Compose your landscape picture so that the horizon appears straight. Creative, fun angles have their place in photography, but not when you're taking a horizon.
Fill two thirds of your frame 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 the apparent road or river 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 with a stage of interest in the foreground. This focal point might be a road or other line as mentioned above, a tree, man, animal, house, etc. The focal point won't be the primary issue (the landscape is),but it adds depth, brings the viewer into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, thus engaging the audience longer with your photograph. In short, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and much more enjoyable to view.
Look out for litter. In a landscape photograph, clutter might be something such as power line overhead or an airplane or a stack of branches or rubbish can on the ground. Use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it in the event you can't get the picture you desire without the clutter.
That is it! There is always a lot more to learn with photography, but just by following the hints above you can begin taking really good images of your favorite landscapes.
