Landscape #1

Taoist temple

Visited this temple during the Chinese Lunar New Year. Image made with the iPhone’s native camera and Chrome filter. I like the vintage look of the filter’s yellowish tint.



  • Maximise your depth of field to ensure as much of your scene is in focus as possible.
  • Look for a focal point – a building or a structure, a striking tree, a boulder or rock formation, a silhouette, etc. Think not only about what the focal point is, but where you place it. The rule of thirds might be useful here.
  • Think foregrounds – if foreground elements are placed as points of interest, they can set apart your landscape shots by creating a sense of depth in your image.

Thanks to Digital Photography School for the above tips.
