We will continue our review of techniques and landscape photography hints now. Add these suggestions to your landscape and cityscape photos and you will start winning photo competitions! It is practically a given!

We discussed light.

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

At those times there's a phenomenon we'll call a 'false' dawn and sundown that could produce some absolutely beautiful colors in your landscape and cityscape photos.

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

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

Attempt shooting the same scene at both twilight and dawn, then compare the outcomes to exactly the same scene shot at noon. You may never sleep in again!

Next we mentioned when there are clouds in the sky, shooting. This will definitely add a lot of visual interest to the scene - in addition to a lot of colour. Now the rising or setting sun has something to bounce off of! When the weather is lousy... Get out there! That is the time you will receive the top shots.

Today, let's add a couple more landscape photography hints and techniques.

Utilize a tripod! When shooting landscapes, particularly in the morning and post sunset times - you will need an extended exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field requires shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Don't even think of attempting to get a contest winner by shooting handheld. It won't happen.

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

For the ultimate in photo sharpness - in addition to locking up the mirror, utilize a shutter release that is timed. It might appear like a little overkill, but these sharpness techniques can and do make a significant 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 diagonals and so on.

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

They are uncommon while there are times that placing the horizon in the middle is the correct call. Be sure to have a particular reason to do this!

Last but not least... Ensure your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Be sure that characteristic is accented by you and drive the audience's attention to it. Do not make the mistake of attempting to make the entire scene equally significant. You require a star.
