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

We talked about light.

First we discussed the shade of light... You must 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 is a happening we'll call a 'false' dawn and sunset that could produce some absolutely stunning colours in your landscape and cityscape photographs.

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

At twilight and daybreak, the glancing light from the sun is right at the perfect angle to make a great deal of darkness that are defining. This will definitely add lots of third dimensionality to your pictures and make them come alive!

Try shooting the same scene at both dusk and morning, then compare the outcomes to the exact same scene shot at midday. 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 color. 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 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 morning and post sunset times - you will need an extended exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field necessitates 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 happen.

In case your camera has one, subsequently, make use of 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. It might appear like a bit of 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 draw the audience'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's 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? Place the horizon in the upper third.

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

Last but not least... Make sure that your photo has a 'star'. What brought you to the scene? Make certain that feature is accented by you and drive the viewer's attention to it. Don't make the blunder of attempting to make the whole scene equally significant. You will need a star.
