Reflecting

Today my intention was to do a proper job of taking a landscape photograph...

First rule: The picture has to have a subject.
Second rule: Keep rule of thirds in mind when setting up photo.
Third rule: Try to use leading lines whenever posssible.
Fourth rule: Keep horizon level in photograph.
Fifth rule: Use smaller aperteure setting to get foreground and background in focus.
Sixth rule: Use exposure delay mode so mirror flipping around in camera doesn't cause bluring.
Seventh rule: Use your tripod! I think I recall Le Quynh saying something about this several hundred times!


Sure are alot of things to keep in mind for one silly photograph LOL!

  2. And a most proper photo was the results of your efforts. Everthing is well composed and in focus. The lilly pads really add to the appeal of the photo. I am drawn all the way across the water to the far shore.

    Thanks for the seven rules for achieving a proper landscape.

  3. Bravo Bravo Paul! With all of the efforts for a silly photograph, but it's an awesome result for a life time. If you did not use the CP filter for this one. However, this photo is a exceptional photography wihtout it. Also, this place it seems to be a nice place, I would come back to caputure the reflection of the Sunset. Thanks for using a tripod. Nice Work!
