Hints to Beautiful Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out correctly it can give results that are astounding. In reality there are really so many top photographers that have contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is just photography of landscapes. It may 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 guidelines you need to keep in mind when you shoot those stunning pics.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major criterion. In the event you'd like actual good pictures, then you will need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. This may get troublesome if you're using a conventional zoom lens or a point and shoot. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and hence won't manage to capture the whole landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there is not 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 use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized. A great wide angle is the canon 10-22 mm lens that 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 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 quite expensive. If you're searching for a cheaper option, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are affordable, but the image quality is not so good. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely essential. The top time for landscape is either dawn or twilight. The natural lighting is just right and offers the very best result. The dilemma with brilliant day light is the fact that it can give your photos a washed out look, and may generate plenty of glare. This can be rectified by using a circular polariser. Yet 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 'd mentioned in my earlier article on rule of thirds. This anything or boat proper, or could be a tree. This make for a better composition and will give greater depth to your photos.
4. Lastly this really is a superb trick to boost the look of you pictures. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a way that this road or river seems to either entering or leaving the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
