Landscape Images Hints - The way to Take Great Pictures
In case you are like most camera owners and have a digital compact, this is your camera's time to shine. For serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the obvious camera selection, but in regards to landscapes, compact cameras rule only because they offer a far greater depth of field. Follow these strategies and all you have to do to get some excellent landscape photographs will be to set your compact to landscape mode.
Recall one of the most crucial keys to taking good photographs is the characteristic of light.
For lighting that is soft, even and has a touch of heat, shoot your landscape photos during the Golden Hours: the first hour after daybreak and the last hour before sunset (unless you are taking sunset pictures.

Under an overcast sky, shoot for intensified colours and dim highlights.
For dramatic shadows, shoot under a cloudy sky.
Enhance 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 great is composition. Here are a few composition tips for landscape photos that are perfect.
Compose your landscape picture so that the horizon seems straight. Creative, entertaining angles have their place in photography, but not when you're taking a horizon.
Fill two-thirds of your frame with all the subject of most interest, if it be a dramatic sky or an interesting foreground.
Try to find lines. These could be anything from river or the clear road to a shadow running along sand dunes. Try framing your photo so the major lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, for instance, a road winding its way to the mountains which are the subject of your photograph, in case your image has lines.

Frame the composition using a stage of interest in the foreground. This focal point could be a road or alternative line as mentioned above, a tree, individual, animal, house, etc. The focal point will not be the main issue (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 more 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, litter could be a pile of branches or something similar to an airplane or power line overhead or rubbish can on the ground. Use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it if you can't get the shot you desire without the jumble.
That is it! There's always more to learn with photography, but just by following the advice above you can start shooting really good graphics of your favorite landscapes.
