Sometimes a beginner or more advanced photographer contacts me and asks, how could I improve my landscape photos.
At my beginnings I mostly took photos at the very wide angle, for the beginner in landscape photography that is quite normal, because I haven't had such sharp and “highly trained” eyes, .With years of practice the eyes “learned” to see more, as they have at the beginning of my photographic journey.
Then after a while you realize, that there is something missing in your photos and you would like to improve. I achived my progress, when I started to notice distant motives and objects, that I didn't before, then I started to photograph them with telephoto lenses. With this my photography got to the whole new level.
Here are some examples . In the left photos are marked motifs, which are then photographed with a telephoto lens on the right side. (Click on the photos to enlarge them)
Lenart, towards the Holy Trinity at 36 mm (Nikon 24-85 VR) a few minutes later, 300 mm (Nikon 70-300 VR)
Pohorje, shot into the valley at 85mm (Nikon 24-85 VR) later 240mm (Nikon 70-300)
Austrian Styria, 70mm (Nikon 24-85 VR) later, 300 mm (Nikon 70-300 VR)
I hope, that some will find this advice handy, Enjoy taking pictures. :)
