Tricks to Beautiful Landscape Photographs
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and implemented 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 really have a life of its own. Anyways leaving aside all this, what is landscape photography. Landscape photography is only photography of landscapes. It might be a snow clad mountain, a meandering river, a lovely 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 an important criterion. In case you need real photos that are good, then you will need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. If you're utilizing a point and shoot or a standard zoom lens this may get troublesome. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus will not 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 will talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you definitely can use one of the specialized wide angle lenses, if you own a DSLR. A good wide angle is the canon 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you'll be able to use it only with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Just continue in mind you are in need of a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are quite expensive. If you are searching for a more affordable alternative, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are economical, but the image quality is not too good. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is very vital. The top time for landscape is either morning or twilight. The natural lighting is just right and provides the top result. The dilemma with bright day light is that it can produce lots of glare, and may give your photos a washed out look. This can be rectified 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 appropriate, or might be a tree. This will definitely give greater depth to your photos and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this really is a superb trick to boost the appearance of you photographs. Search for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a way that river or this road seems to either leaving or entering the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
