Follow these tips and all you have to do to get some excellent landscape pictures will be to place your streamlined 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 warmth, shoot your landscape photographs during the Golden Hours: the first hour after dawn and the past hour before sundown (unless you're shooting sunset pictures.

Under an overcast sky, shoot for intensified colours and dim highlights.
For remarkable shadows, shoot under a cloudy sky.
Enhance the qualify of your image and add play by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for example, red and gold fall leafed trees against a blue sky that is powerful.
To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.
The next most important component of any picture that is good is composition. Here are some composition strategies for landscape photos that are perfect.
Compose your landscape picture so that the horizon appears straight. Creative, entertaining angles have their place in photography, but not when you are taking a horizon.
Fill two thirds of your frame together with the topic of most interest, if it be an interesting foreground or a remarkable sky.
Try to find lines. These could be anything from the clear road or river to a shadow running along sand dunes. If your image has lines, try framing your photo so that the major 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.

Frame the composition using a point of interest in the foreground. This focal point could possibly be other line or a road as stated previously, a tree, person, animal, house, etc. The focal point won't be the principal issue (the landscape is),but it adds depth, brings the viewer into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, thus engaging the viewer more with your photograph. In short, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and more pleasing to view.
Look out for mess. In a landscape photograph, litter could be a heap of branches or something similar to 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's it! There's always more to learn with photography, but just by following the suggestions above you can start shooting extremely good images of your favourite landscapes.
