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

Yesterday we talked about light.

First we discussed the shade 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 'false' dawn and sundown that can create 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 plenty of shadows that emphasize and define their muscles.

At twilight and daybreak, the glancing light from the sun is right at the best angle to produce a great deal of shadows that are defining. This can add your photographs and lots of third dimensionality 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 may never sleep in again!

Next we mentioned when there are clouds in the sky, shooting. This will definitely add a great deal of visual interest to the scene - as well as lots of colour. 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'll get the very best shots.

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

Utilize 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.) Don't even think of trying to get a contest winner by shooting handheld. It will not occur.

In case your camera has one, then, 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. These sharpness techniques can and do make a major difference, although it may seem like a little overkill.

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

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

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

Last but not least... Make fully sure your photo has a 'star'. What brought you to the scene? Be sure that feature is accented by you and drive the viewer's attention to it. Do not make the mistake of attempting to make the entire scene equally important. You require a star.
