Suggestions to Beautiful Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and implemented correctly it can give results that are astounding. Actually there are so many top photographers that have 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 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 instead guidelines you need to keep in mind when you shoot those pics that are beautiful.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major criterion. In the event you need actual good pictures, then you'll need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. This can get frustrating if you're utilizing a point and shoot or a regular zoom lens. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and therefore won't have the capacity to capture the entire landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there is not much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). In the event that you possess a DSLR, then you can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized. A great wide angle is the canon 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you can use it just with Cannon, but 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 very costly. If you are searching for a cheaper option, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are cheap, but the image quality is not so great. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite vital. The very best time for landscape is either twilight or dawn. The natural lighting is just right and offers the best result. The dilemma with bright day light is that it may give your photos a washed out look, and can produce lots of glare. This can be rectified by using a circular polariser. Nevertheless remember that using a CPL will decrease the amount of light entering the sensor by around two stops.

3. Get a subject in the foreground: get a subject in the fore ground As I had mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds. This anything or boat suitable, or could be a tree. This make for a better composition and will give greater depth to your photographs.
4. Lastly it is a super trick to improve the appearance of you photographs. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a way that river or this road appears to either leaving or entering the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
