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

We talked about light yesterday.

First we discussed the color 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 have to keep shooting for about 20 minutes or so past sunset.

At those times there is a happening we will call a 'false' sunrise and sundown that can produce some absolutely stunning colors in your landscape and cityscape photos.

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 accent and define their muscles.

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

Try shooting the same scene at both dusk and dawn, then compare the results to the exact same scene shot at noon. You will never sleep in again!

Next we mentioned when there are clouds in the sky shooting. This will definitely add lots 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 current weather is awful... Get out there! That is certainly the time you'll get the best shots.

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

Make use of a tripod! Post sunset times and when shooting landscapes, especially in the daybreak - you will require a long 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.

Afterward, utilize the mirror lockup feature in case your camera has one. Most of the better DSLR cameras do.

For the ultimate 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 bit of overkill.

As far as composition is concerned, pay attention to the foreground! Use it to draw on the audience's eye into the photo. Use leading lines diagonals and so forth.

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

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

Last but not least... Make sure your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Make sure you stress that feature and drive the audience's focus to it. Do not make the mistake of trying to make the whole scene equally significant. You'll need a star.
