Tips to Stunning Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out correctly it can give astounding results. In fact there are really so many top photographers who've 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 just photography of landscapes. It might be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a lovely rainbow, a crimson red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or rather when you shoot those pics that are stunning guidelines you have to keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major criterion. If you want real good photos, then you'll need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. This may get annoying if you are using a regular zoom lens or a point and shoot. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and consequently will not have the ability 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). In the event you own 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 which I use (Of course you can use it only with Cannon, but 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 costly. If you're looking for a cheaper choice, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are affordable, but the image quality isn't so good. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite crucial. The top time for landscape is either twilight or dawn. The natural lighting provides the best result and is just right. The dilemma with bright day light is the fact that it may produce lots of glare, and may give your photos a washed out look. This is often rectified using a circular polariser. However recall that using a CPL will reduce 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 'd mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds. This could be a tree, or boat or anything appropriate. This make for a better composition and will give greater depth to your photographs.
4. Lastly this really is a super trick to boost the appearance of you pictures. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of style that this road or river appears to either entering or leaving the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
