Suggestions to Beautiful Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out properly it can give results that are astounding. In fact there are really so many top photographers who've 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 simply photography of landscapes. It could be a snow clad mountain, a meandering river, a beautiful rainbow, a crimson red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or rather guidelines you should keep in mind when you take those pics that are stunning.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important standard. In case you want good photographs that are actual, then you will need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. If you're utilizing a point and shoot or a standard zoom lens this may get annoying. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and hence will not be able to capture the entire landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there isn't much you can do except use the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you definitely can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized, in the event that you have a DSLR. A great wide angle is the rule 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you'll be able to use it only with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Just keep in mind you require a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very costly. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are economical, but the image quality isn't so good. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite essential. The best time for landscape is either morning or twilight. The natural lighting is just correct and offers the best result. The issue with brilliant day light is the fact that it will give your photos a washed out appearance, and can create a lot of glare. This is often rectified using a circular polariser. Nevertheless 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 make for a better composition and will give greater depth to your photographs.
4. Lastly this really is a superb trick to enhance the look of you pictures. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a way that river or this road seems to either leaving or entering the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
