All you need to do to get some amazing landscape photographs is to place your streamlined to landscape mode and follow these tips.
Recall one of the very important keys to taking great photos is the quality of light.
For lighting that's soft, even and has a touch of warmth, take your landscape photos during the Golden Hours: the first hour after daybreak and the past hour before sundown (unless you're shooting sunset images.

Under an overcast sky, shoot for subdued highlights and intensified colors.
Under a cloudy sky, shoot for dramatic shadows.
Accentuate the qualify of your image by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for example, red and gold autumn leafed trees against a blue sky that is strong, and add drama.
To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.
The next most significant component of any picture that is great is composition. Here are a few composition strategies for landscape pictures that are perfect.
Compose your landscape picture so the horizon appears straight. Creative, entertaining angles have their place in photography, but not when you are shooting a horizon.
Fill two thirds of your frame with all the subject of most interest, whether it be an interesting foreground or a spectacular sky.
Try to find lines. These could be anything from the apparent road or river to a shadow running along sand dunes. Try framing your photo so the important lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, for example, a road winding its way to the mountains which are the subject of your photograph, if your image has lines.

Frame the composition using a point of interest in the foreground. This focal point might be a road or alternative line as mentioned above, a tree, man, animal, house, etc. The focal point won't be the primary topic (the landscape is),but it adds depth, attracts the viewer into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, thus engaging the viewer longer with your photograph. Simply speaking, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and much more pleasing to view.
Look out for clutter. In a landscape photograph, clutter might be a stack of branches or something such as power line overhead or an airplane or rubbish can on the ground. Use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it, in the event you can't get the picture you want without the litter.
That is it! There's always more to learn with photography, but just by following the suggestions above you can start taking extremely good graphics of your favorite landscapes.
