We discussed light yesterday.

First we discussed the shade of light... Begin shooting in the 20 or so minutes before dawn and you need to get up early in the morning. AND also you need to keep shooting for about 20 minutes or so past sunset.

At those times there's a happening we'll call a 'bogus' sunrise and sunset that could produce some absolutely beautiful colors in your landscape and cityscape photographs.

Next we talked about the angle of the light... Consider bodybuilder pictures. The light is coming from about 90 degrees to the discipline. This creates a lot of shadows that highlight and define their muscles.

At twilight and daybreak, the glancing light from the sun is at the best angle to produce lots of defining shadows. This can add lots of third dimensionality to your photographs and make them come alive!

Try shooting the same scene at both dusk and dawn, then compare the outcomes to exactly the same scene shot at noon. You'll never sleep in again!

Next we mentioned when there are clouds in the sky, shooting. This will add a great deal of visual interest to the scene - in addition to a lot of shade. Now the rising or setting sun has something to bounce off of! When the weather is poor... Get out there! That is certainly the time you'll get the very best shots.

Now, let us add a couple more landscape photography hints and techniques.

Make use of a tripod! When shooting landscapes, especially in the predawn and post sunset times - you will require an extended exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field necessitates shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Do not even think of attempting to get a competition winner by shooting handheld. It will not occur.

If your camera has one, afterward, make use of the mirror lockup feature. Most of the better DSLR cameras do.

For the ultimate in photo sharpness - in addition to locking up the mirror, use a timed shutter release. It might seem like a bit of overkill, but these sharpness techniques can and do make a big change.

Pay attention to the foreground, as far as composition is concerned! Use it to attract the viewer's eye into the photo. Use leading lines, framing, diagonals and so on.

Another compositional element to consider is the horizon, make it level! What is the most important element in your landscape or cityscape photo? Is it the sky? If so, set the horizon on the lower third of the shot. Is it the ground? Put the horizon in the upper third.

They're rare while there are times that putting the horizon in the middle is the correct call. Make sure you are in possession of a special reason to do so!

Last but not least... Ensure your photo has a 'star'. What brought you to the scene? Be sure you accentuate that attribute and drive the audience's focus to it. Do not make the error of trying to make the whole scene equally important. You require a star.
