Rugged

1/200 sec. f/16 ISO 100

Today's Tip:
Vertical composition is often forgotten. It can create a different perspective or eliminate unwanted elements from a scene.

That hill would be some rugged climbing. Count me out. :)

Rugged and rocky, but oh so beautiful!

I used this trick recently in one of my own shoots. I took a photo of our house, and usually people go into landscape mode for that, but the vertical composition removed a lot of unwanted objects and the image was better.

Beautiful location! I find myself so drawn to vertical framing that I have to make an effort to go horizontal. I think things look so beautiful portrait-style!

just gorgeous!

i'm always a bit gleeful when you give a tip that i sometimes do right. just recently, i've taken some sky shots (yeah, yeah, with my cell phone, but still...)and i chose to shoot a few in portrait mode. really liked the result and have even used a few as my screensaver (yeah, yeah, on my cell phone, but still...) :P

Nice shot! I've always had a hard time holding my camera sideways. I suppose that's what tri-pods are for.
