Shooting Landscapes

I shoot mainly landscapes. And there are a lot of blog postings and articles in the internet advising us hot to take landscape photos.

I learned that we should always have a foreground, middle ground and background elements to give impressions of a 3 dimensional view in an already 2 dimensional piece of a photograph.

I also learned to incorporate and use photography composition such as Rule of Third, Angles, Leading Lines, Curves and other basic rules to compose a good picture.

My photography sifu (master teacher) always insisted that I used a tripod and cable shutter release to minimize camera shake to get a sharp picture.

And to top it all, for landscape photography, its sort of a strict religious rule to shoot during the Golden Hours i.e those few hours of sunrise and sunsets.

Did I leave anything out?

Please feel free to add your tips and advices in the comment column.

Cheers all.

Very nice pictures, congrats!
I would add to plan ahead, check the position of the sun, use google earth, etc, so that you are at the right place at the right time.

Good pictures! I would add you did not mension using various filters (polariser, UV, gradient, color...) to manage optimal contrast or color of photography which is for lanscape usualy strongly recomended :-)
and using various type of lenses (wide x tele lens) to catch different feel of the scene.
