The lure of the outdoors is powerful for the keen photographer, and landscape photography is regularly voted by amateurs as the most popular genre. It’s a subject that is easily accessible for most and there’s a whole world of potential subjects out there. Because this subject is so popular, you will need to work hard to stand out – but we’ve kept the brief fairly loose so you can show us your interpretations of landscape. Whether you prefer grand, sweeping mountain vistas or to concentrate on abstract details, be sure to shoot in the best possible light, as this is the crucial element that will make your images stand out.
