Follow these strategies and all you have to do to get some amazing landscape photographs would be to place your streamlined to landscape mode.
Remember one of the very important keys to taking great pictures is the characteristic of light.

Under an overcast sky, shoot for intensified colors and subdued highlights.
For dramatic shadows, shoot under a cloudy sky.
Enhance the qualify of your image by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for example, red and golden autumn leafed trees against a blue sky that is strong, and add drama.
To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.
The next most important element of any great picture is composition. Below are some composition tips for perfect landscape photographs.
Compose your landscape picture so the horizon appears straight. Creative, fun angles have their place in photography, but not when you're shooting a horizon.
Fill two thirds of your frame with all the subject of most interest, if it be a dramatic sky or an interesting foreground.
Look for lines. These could be anything from river or the obvious road to a shadow running along sand dunes. In case your image has lines, try framing your photo so that the major lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, for example, a road winding its way to the mountains which are the subject of your photograph.

Frame the composition using a stage of interest in the foreground. This focal point could be other line or a road as mentioned above, a tree, person, animal, house, etc. The focal point will not be the primary subject (the landscape is),but it adds depth, lures the viewer into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, so engaging the audience more with your photograph. In summary, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and more pleasing to view.
Look out for jumble. In a landscape photograph, jumble might be a heap of branches or something such as power line overhead or an airplane or rubbish can on the ground. In the event you can not get the picture you want without the litter, use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it.
That is it! There's always a lot more to learn with photography, but only by following the tips above you can start shooting really great pictures of your favorite landscapes.
