Hints to Beautiful Landscape Photographs
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out properly it can give results that are astounding. Actually there are really so many top photographers who have brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to truly have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is only photography of landscapes. It may 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 when you take those pics that are stunning guidelines you should keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important standard. In case you like good pictures that are actual, then you'll need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you are employing a typical zoom lens or a point and shoot this can 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 is not much you can do except use the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you definitely can use one of the specialized wide angle lenses, if you possess a DSLR. A good 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. Simply bear 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 quite expensive. If you are searching for a cheaper option, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are economical, 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 morning or dusk. The natural lighting is just right and offers the top result. The problem with bright day light is that it can create lots of glare, and will give your photos a washed out look. This can be rectified using a circular polariser. Yet remember that using a CPL will reduce the amount of light entering the sensor by around two stops.

3. Get a subject in the foreground: As I 'd mentioned in my earlier article on rule of thirds, get a subject in the fore ground. This might be a tree, or boat or anything suitable. This will definitely give greater depth to your pictures and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this is a superb trick to enhance the appearance of you photos. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a way this road or river seems to either leaving or entering the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
