Tips to Stunning Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and executed 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 really 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 sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or rather when you take those pics that are stunning guidelines you should keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major criterion. If you like actual pictures that are good, then you'll need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you are using a point and shoot or a standard zoom lens, this can get troublesome. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus will not be able to capture the whole landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there isn't much you can do except use the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). If you own a DSLR, then you definitely can certainly use one of the specialized wide angle lenses. A great wide angle is the rule 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you'll be able to use it only with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Only continue 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 are searching for a more affordable choice, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are economical, but the image quality is not too good. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is very vital. The top time for landscape is either dusk or morning. The natural lighting is just correct and provides the very best result. The dilemma with bright day light is that it will give your photos a washed out appearance, and may produce plenty of glare. This is often rectified using a circular polariser. Yet remember that using a CPL will decrease the amount of light entering the sensor by two stops that are around.

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