Smartphone Landscapes And Textures In Nature – Don’t Miss Our Latest Update


We welcome some broad landscape shots in Tersha's Smartphone Photography set! The curious thing about landscape photography is that one doesn't simply go out and capture whatever crosses our sight. One should always acknowledge that we are just witnessing what nature is willing to unveil to us. Sometimes, reaching such cohesiveness requires patiently scouting, and that's when everything makes sense.

And when such a moment arrives, one should also mind exposure, composition, and many other stuff behind photography being so fun! For a better viewing experience of the following imagery, you should pay close attention to things like exposure, lines, and framing.

This time, POTW goes to @tersha and her poetic rainy shot.
I love everything about this image – the colors, composition, haziness, natural watercolor effect.
Congrats, Diane!

Even the most simple of all compositional elements -the line- can be used to enhance the story of a photograph. Here, the road implies a certain direction and infinite movement due to having been cut at both ends:
