Suggestions to Beautiful Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and executed correctly it can give results that are astounding. In fact there are so many top photographers that have contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is simply photography of landscapes. It might be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a beautiful rainbow, a crimson red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are definite rules or instead when you take those pics that are beautiful guidelines you must keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important standard. In case you prefer real photographs that are great, then you will need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. This could get annoying if you're utilizing a standard zoom lens or a point and shoot. 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 make use of the panorama mode (I will talk in detail about the panorama mode). If you possess a DSLR, then you can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized. A good wide angle is the canon 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you'll be able to use it just with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Just bear in mind you require a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very expensive. If you're searching for a more economical option, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are cheap, but the image quality is not too great. So itis a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite vital. The best time for landscape is either twilight or dawn. The natural lighting is just right and provides the top result. The dilemma with bright day light is that it may give your photos a washed out appearance, and can create plenty of glare. This can be rectified using a circular polariser. However recall that using a CPL will decrease 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 appropriate, or could be a tree. This make for a better composition and will definitely give greater depth to your photos.
4. Lastly this is a superb trick to improve the appearance of you photographs. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a way that river or this road appears to either entering or leaving the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
