An absolute beginner when it comes to landscape photography, I took quite a few shots of Bled Lake on a visit to Slovenia last year, this being one of the better ones, although I did get some with a boat and others in portrait mode with trees framing the island in the distance.
I would very much appreciate some advice on what works and, more importantly, what doesn't, as we are going back to Slovenia in June and I will have another opportunity to work on this again. This is straight from the camera, just lightly sharpened and resized for EPZ. Taken in jpeg, although I have now started shooting in RAW.
I know one mistake I made, which was to shoot hand held at 1/25 sec, but no doubt have made several others too.
Also, what is the correct metering mode to use for landscape?
All advice greatly appreciated.
