Now we'll continue our review of landscape photography tips and techniques. Add these suggestions to your landscape and cityscape photos and you will begin winning photo competitions! It is practically a given!

We discussed light.

First we discussed the color of light... You have to get up early in the morning and start shooting in the 20 or so minutes before daybreak. AND also you have to keep shooting for about 20 minutes or so previous sundown.

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

Next we talked about the angle of the light... Consider bodybuilder photographs. The light is coming from about 90 degrees to the subject. This creates lots of shadows that define their muscles and emphasize.

At dawn and twilight, the glancing light from the sun is right at the right angle to create a lot of defining shadows. This will definitely add a great deal of third dimensionality to your pictures and make them come alive!

Try shooting the same scene at both dusk and morning, then compare the results to the exact 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 plenty of visual interest to the scene - as well as a lot of shade. Now the rising or setting sun has something to bounce off of! When the weather is bad... Get out there! That is certainly the time you will receive the top shots.

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

Make use of a tripod! Post sunset times and when shooting landscapes, especially in the morning - you'll need a long exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field needs 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 happen.

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

For the best in photo sharpness - in addition to locking up the mirror, use a shutter release that is timed. These sharpness techniques can and do make a big difference, although it may seem like a little overkill.

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 diagonals and so forth.

Another compositional component to think about is the horizon, make it level! What exactly is the most crucial element in your landscape or cityscape photo? Is it the sky? If so, place the horizon on the lower third of the shot. Is it the ground? Set in the upper third.

They are rare while there are times that setting the horizon in the middle is the right call. Be sure to are in possession of a special reason to do so!

Last but not least... Be sure your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Make certain that attribute is accented by you and drive the audience's focus to it. Don't make the mistake of trying to make the entire scene equally significant. You require a star.
