Some quick Landscape photography tips

Time of the day: Quality of light is very important for taking good landscape photographs. Photographers shoot in early morning and late evening since the quality of light is good at that time. Shooting in mid-day or during harsh sunlight results washes out colors in the photographs.

Depth of field: Use narrow apertures to ensure proper depth of field. A landscape photograph should be sharp throughout the scene. Use f numbers above f8.

Composition: Use rule of thirds to compose your shots. If the foreground is important, keep it in the bottom 1/3rd of the frame. And if the sky is important, frame it in the top 1/3rd of the frame. Another important composition tip is scaling. Try to keep a human element to show the grandeur of the palace that you are shooting.

If you are a beginner, I hope these tips will get you started.
