Tips to Beautiful Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and implemented correctly it can give astounding results. Actually there are so many top photographers who've contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's 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 beautiful rainbow, a crimson red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or rather when you shoot those pics that are stunning guidelines you should keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major standard. Then you will need to get as much of the landscape in your frame, in case you would like real great photos. If you are using a regular zoom lens or a point and shoot this can get frustrating. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus will not have the ability to capture the entire landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there isn't much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you definitely can use one of the specialized wide angle lenses, if you own a DSLR. A good wide angle is the rule 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you'll be able to use it just with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Only bear in mind you necessitate a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very costly. If you are looking for a more affordable alternative, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are affordable, but the image quality is not so great. So itis a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is very critical. The best time for landscape is either twilight or morning. The natural lighting is just correct and offers the top result. The issue with brilliant day light is the fact that it may create lots of glare, and will give your photos a washed out look. This is often rectified using a circular polariser. Nevertheless remember that using a CPL will decrease the amount of light entering the sensor by two stops that are around.

3. Get a subject in the foreground: get a subject in the fore ground, As I 'd mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds. This could be a tree, or boat or anything appropriate. This will give greater depth to your photographs and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly it is a superb trick to improve the appearance of you photographs. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a manner that this road or river appears to either leaving or entering the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
