Suggestions to Stunning Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out properly it can give astounding results. In reality there are really so many top photographers who've contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to have a life of its own. Anyways leaving aside all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is just photography of landscapes. It could be a snow clad a beautiful rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a crimson red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or rather guidelines you need to keep in mind when you take those stunning pics.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important criterion. In case you'd like actual photos that are great, then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you are employing a point and shoot or a typical zoom lens, this could get frustrating. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and consequently 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 you have a DSLR, then you definitely can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized. A good wide angle is the rule 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you can use it just with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Only keep 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 expensive. If you are looking for a more affordable option, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are cheap, but the image quality isn't too great. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is very crucial. The very best time for landscape is either twilight or dawn. The natural lighting offers the best result and is just correct. The problem 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. However 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 post on rule of thirds, get a subject in the fore ground. This boat or anything proper, or might be a tree. This will definitely give greater depth to your photographs and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly it is a super trick to boost the look of you photos. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a manner that river or this road appears to either entering or leaving the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
