Is It Easy or Difficult to Take a Wide Shot? - Rockies N7054e

This is again another repost of old picture in 2011.

 

I never have good luck in landscape shooting. When I went to this Canadian Rockies vacation, I had all kinds of bad weather during the trip. The sky was not clear and the mountains are hiding in the mist and rain etc.

 

I think the most important skill for amateur photographer is to shoot decent or good pictures in all kinds of weather. What do you think?

 

The following is the original story of my post.

  

It is easy to take a wide view. Just swing your head and you will see the panoramic view.

 

It is difficult to take a wide shot. The wider the view on landscape, the more sky will be included in the scene. We have to make sure there is an interesting sky.

 

The most difficult part for wide shot is that you need to find an interesting foreground element to guide the view of your readers into the scene.

 

I am not sure if I had everything in the wide scene but I need to prove I was there. So I still took the wide shot at Emerald Lake regardless.

 

Happy Friday and weekend!

 

I would appreciate it a lot if you will tell me whether you like more this wide shot (landscape) or the portrait (vertical) composition in the previous post.
