Landscapes: Weekly Photography Challenge

Landscape-Foreground

This past week we’ve had a few tutorials on Landscape Photography so I thought it might make a good topic for this week’s challenge.

So – your challenge is to take and share a landscape photo.

Feel free to shoot whatever type of landscape image you like (and have available to you). For many of you it might be a snowscape, for others in the southern hemisphere it could be a http://digital-photography-school.com/5-quick-tips-for-coastal-photography”>beachscape, it could be a cityscape or anything else you like.

Also feel free to photograph your landscape in any way/style – black and white, HDR, sunset – it is totally up to you.

Once you’ve taken and selected your best landscape shot upload it to your favourite photo sharing site and either share a link to it or – embed it in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSLANDSCAPE to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in our last challenge – Best Shot of 2012 challenge where there were some beautiful shots submitted.

    I read these articles each week and think to myself I must try that challenge this week, then I forget about it. When I do remember the challenge I look back at some of the photo submitted and I think to myself, Just as well I forgot about the challenge, I could never get take a photo like that one of the next one. Should not do this as each photo taken can have a life of its own but I still need to believe that I can take a good photo even if I don’t have all the equipment and software that most of the people submitting have. I will keep on trying. Thanks for all the great articles and photos.

    Hi Robert

    That’s a very defeatist way of looking at photography, I think. If you never try, you will never learn and you have to start somewhere. You don’t need expensive equipment and/or software to make a nice picture and personally I prefer the pics which are not too much manipulated afterwards.

    So, just take what you have and use it to your best ability!!! I look forward to seeing your pictures :o)

    Hi Robert,
    Your comment struck a chord with me. I just returned from the WPPI conference and trade show. On two different days I went in to view all the competition prints. Absolutely stunning work! A part of me was depressed seeing how great the work was in comparison to what I routinely produce. And part of me was inspired by great photography and what can be achieved. Then I recalled how I felt 6 years ago when I first went to WPPI and had the same feelings. Looking back, I now produce much of what I saw 6 years ago – but the bar keeps being raised! Inspiration wins out and I look forward to continual incremental improvement of my skills and corresponding results.

    Here' s one of mine from last summer. Shooting across the Bay of Naples from Sorrento as the sun came up. I was taken in by the curving wall leading toward an old hotel (Albergo Lorelei), followed by the hills in the distance, then Mt Vesuvius penetrating up thru the low clouds.

    This photo was put together using photostitch. I had just got a new 35mm prime and was determined to use this lens for the whole trekking trip. The scenery was so vast and expansive there was so way to express it without stitching it together.

    Nikon D5000, 35mm, will have to look at the exif data on another comp for the settings

    Earlier this month we visited Myanmar and travelled about by train, horse cart and ferry. It was a wonderful experience, not nearly long enough. We arrived in Mandalay in the early morning and I took this shot out the window of the train while we were still passing through farmland to the south of the city.

    One of my favorite landscapes:
    A trail winds through a vast, white rock-sheet that looks like snow, dotted with blue, boiling geothermal pools at Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming.

    Here in Maine, the transformation of a lake from liquid to ice is fascinating to observe and to photograph. As I walked Sebago Lake's rocky shores near sunset on January 5th, I came upon this unique ice formation just begging to be photographed. Setting my camera on the tripod (Aperture f/18, ISO 200, 1/10 sec), I waited for that fleeting moment when the setting sun would cast its golden glow on the ice. It was truly a magical moment in time, the next day when I returned the ice sculpture had fallen victim to rising temperatures.
