Landscape Images Suggestions - How to Take Great Photographs
If you're have a digital compact and like the majority of camera owners, this is your camera's time to glow. For serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the noticeable camera pick, but when it comes to landscapes, compact cameras rule because they provide a better depth of field. All you need to do to get some great landscape pictures would be to set your compact to landscape mode and follow these strategies.
Remember one of the very important keys to shooting good pictures is the quality of light.
For lighting that is soft, even and has a touch of warmth, shoot your landscape photos during the Golden Hours: the first hour after dawn and the last hour before sundown (unless you're shooting sunset images.

Under an overcast sky, shoot for intensified colors and dim highlights.
Under a cloudy sky, shoot for remarkable shadows.
Enhance the qualify of your image and add play by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for example, red and golden fall leafed trees against a strong blue sky.
To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.
The next most important component of any great picture is composition. Here are some composition strategies for landscape photographs that are perfect.
Compose your landscape picture so that the horizon appears straight. Creative, entertaining angles have their place in photography, but not when you're shooting a horizon.
Fill two-thirds of your frame with all the topic of most interest, if it be an interesting foreground or a spectacular sky.
Search for lines. These could be anything from the clear road or river to a shadow running along sand dunes. Try framing your picture so that the major lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, for instance, a road winding its way to the mountains that are the subject of your photograph, in case your image has lines.

Frame the composition using a point of interest in the foreground. This focal point could be other line or a road as mentioned above, a tree, person, animal, house, etc. The focal point won't be the main topic (the landscape is),but it adds depth, draws the audience into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, thus engaging the audience more with your photograph. In short, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and much more enjoyable to view.
Look out for jumble. In a landscape photograph, clutter may be something such as power line overhead or an airplane or a pile of branches or rubbish can on the ground. Use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it if you can't get the picture you want without the litter.
That is it! There's always a lot more to learn with photography, but just by following the suggestions above you can start taking really great images of your favourite landscapes.
