Landscape Pictures Suggestions - How to Take Great Photographs
In case you are like most camera owners and have a digital compact, this is your camera's time to beam. For serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the clear camera pick, however as it pertains to landscapes, compact cameras rule since they offer a better depth of field. Follow these tips and all you have to do to get some fantastic landscape photos is to place your compact to landscape mode.
Remember one of the most important keys to taking great photographs is the quality of light.
For lighting that is soft, even and has a touch of heat, shoot your landscape photographs during the Golden Hours: the first hour after dawn and the past hour before sundown (unless you're shooting sunset images.

Under an overcast sky, shoot for intensified colors and subdued highlights.
For spectacular shadows, shoot under a cloudy sky.
Enrich the qualify of your image and add play by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for instance, red and gold autumn leafed trees against a powerful blue sky.
To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.
The next most important element of any picture that is good is composition. Here are a few composition strategies for landscape pictures that are perfect.
Compose your landscape picture so the horizon seems straight. Creative, entertaining angles have their place in photography, but not when you are taking a horizon.
Fill two-thirds of your frame with the subject of most interest, if it be an interesting foreground or a remarkable sky.
Look for lines. These could be anything from river or the apparent road to a shadow running along sand dunes. If your image has lines, try framing your photo so the important lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, a road winding its way to the mountains that are the topic of your photograph, for example.

Frame the composition with a point of interest in the foreground. This focal point could possibly be other line or a road as mentioned above, a tree, individual, animal, house, etc. The focal point won't be the main topic (the landscape is),but it adds depth, draws the viewer into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, so engaging the viewer longer with your photograph. Simply speaking, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and much more enjoyable to view.
Look out for jumble. In a landscape photograph, litter could be a stack of branches or something similar to an airplane or power line overhead or rubbish can on the ground. In the event you can't get the shot you want without the jumble, use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it.
That's it! There is always a lot more to learn with photography, but merely by following the hints above you can start taking really good images of your favourite landscapes.
