Hints to Beautiful Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and implemented correctly it can give results that are astounding. Actually there are really so many top photographers who've brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to really have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what is landscape photography. Landscape photography is simply photography of landscapes. It could be a snow clad a beautiful rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a crimson red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or rather when you take those pics that are beautiful guidelines you must keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major criterion. If you prefer actual good photographs, then you'll need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. If you are utilizing a point and shoot or a standard zoom lens this can get frustrating. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus will not be able to capture the whole 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). Then you certainly can use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized, if you have a DSLR. A good wide angle is the principle 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you can use it just with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Simply continue in mind you require a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very costly. If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are affordable, but the image quality is not so great. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is very vital. The top time for landscape is either morning or twilight. The natural lighting is just right and provides the greatest result. The dilemma with bright day light is the fact that it can give your photos a washed out look, and may generate plenty of glare. This is often rectified using a circular polariser. Nevertheless 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 article on rule of thirds. This could be a tree, or boat or anything suitable. This will give greater depth to your photographs and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this is a superb trick to improve the appearance of you photographs. Search for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of style that river or this road appears to either leaving or entering the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
