Since just over a year ago when I decided to step up to a DSLR and buy a Nikon D90, which I absolutely love, I’ve become more and more appreciative of great photography.  I’m still learning to use Photoshop and Lightroom to turn my ‘snapshots’ into some dramatic photos worth showing off.

Digital Photography School just posted these awesome shots.  I really want to get this good some day.

Landscape photography can provide some of the most awe-inspiring photos out there. But doing it well is the key. Anyone can take a snapshot on their vacation, but it takes a talented photographer (a true artist!) to capture the scene. Lighting, angle, crop, lens, and post processing all play a part in the final image. Combining the various elements together is what makes these 25 landscape photos truly outstanding.
