Top 10 WeeklyFstop Photos: Landscape

Top 10 WeeklyFstop Photos: Landscape

Shooting landscape photography is not only fun but very therapeutic. The act of planning and capturing, the peace of the surrounding scenery, and the thrill of success all help your overall well-being in a way that makes photography a very effective way to uplift your spirits. For those of us that can't get out to some of these locations, looking at beautiful photos of them is also very soothing. I hope this week's list can relieve some stress for you. And be sure to check out next week's theme because I'm positive you'll love it.

While I think landscape photography might be the easiest area of photography to get into, I also think it is the hardest to stand out from the crowd in. Any point-and-shoot camera can do a magical scene some justice. The real differentiator is when the photographer is able to immerse the viewer in the scene using strong focal points, sense of depth, and the technical skill needed to make the shot almost surreal.

Go ahead and consider the top four shots this week as possible winners. I was very impressed and think you will be to.

Andrea Re Depaolini

It was hard to choose out of these top four. They are all amazing shots. Andrea Re Depaolini gets the win for the wonderful scale, majestic stars, and the pristine untouched snow covering the landscape up to the mountains. It looks like Depaolini is another Fuji shooter as well. I think that makes at least three on this week's list. Elia Locardi would be proud. Makes me wonder where my Canon, Nikon, and Sony people are though? Consider yourselves called out!

What is This Week's Theme and How Do I Enter?

I think we had a really great list this week because landscape is a lot of peoples favorite genre. I would like to know what your favorite genre is. To do that and hopefully end up with a very diverse mixed bag next week let's go with "favorite" as the theme. Basically, your favorite thing to shoot. If that translates to your favorite photo so be it. If anyone has held back on previous themes because it didn't fit your strength, this is the week to shine!

"Favorite"

To enter simply use the hashtag #weeklyFstopFavorite on any public Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or Flickr post between now and our next weeklyFstop article.

Here are the previous week's results for anyone who may have missed:

  1. Leading Lines
  2. Bold
  3. Color
  4. Yours
  5. Simplicity
  6. Monochrome
  7. Music
  8. Light
  9. Action
  10. Thankful
  11. Bokeh
  12. Toys
  13. Snow
  14. Frozen
  15. Warmth

Remember, there is no guarantee posting a photo will result in it being featured. If we get going and you fall short, keep shooting and try and learn from the photos that are selected. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas feel free to contribute in the comments.

You're very welcome.

Thanks so much guys, I appreciate

Wow, I'm always surprised at the high quality of images on Insta that have very little exposure (apparently) based on number of likes or followers. How is it possible?

love the post, thanks!

I think a lot of users just want to post photos to Instagram and can't be bothered with strategy or all the work involved with building a large following. That is the beauty of the hashtag, all the photos are picked on merit alone.
And bribes, of course.
Thanks!
