Follow these strategies and all you have to do to get some great landscape pictures is to set your streamlined to landscape mode.
Remember one of the main keys to shooting great photos is the quality of light.
For lighting that is soft, even and has a touch of heat, take your landscape photographs during the Golden Hours: the first hour after daybreak and the past hour before sundown (unless you're shooting sunset pictures.

Under an overcast sky, shoot for intensified colours and subdued highlights.
For remarkable shadows, shoot under a cloudy sky.
Enrich the qualify of your image by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for example, red and golden autumn leafed trees against a blue sky that is strong and add play.
To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.
The next most important component of any great picture is composition. Below are some composition strategies for perfect landscape pictures.
Compose your landscape picture so that the horizon seems straight. Creative, fun angles have their place in photography, but not when you are shooting a horizon.
Fill two thirds of your frame with all the topic of the majority of interest, whether it be a dramatic sky or an interesting foreground.
Look for lines. These could be anything from river or the apparent road 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, a road winding its way to the mountains which are the subject of your photograph, for instance.

Frame the composition with a point of interest in the foreground. This focal point might be alternative line or a road as stated previously, a tree, individual, animal, house, etc. The focal point will not be the chief issue (the landscape is),but it adds depth, draws the audience into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, so engaging the viewer longer with your photograph. In summary, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and much more pleasing to view.
Look out for mess. In a landscape photograph, clutter could be something such as power line overhead or an airplane or a stack of branches or rubbish can on the ground. Use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it, in the event that you can not get the picture you need without the litter.
That is it! There is always a lot more to learn with photography, but only by following the suggestions above you can begin taking really good graphics of your favorite landscapes.
