Just got my 60D. So far so good.

Love landscapes. Rarely print in 4x6" format. If I print they are 8x10 and larger.

I really don't want to do a lot of photo manipulation.

What aspect ratio is best for landscapes?

Thanks all!

8X10 will require cropping. If that's what you intend on printing just realize when you frame your shot that the sides will be cropped off. Allow for this and you will be fine printing that aspect ratio.

There's no "best" aspect ratio for landscapes (picking an appropriate aspect ratio is really scene-specific, to produce the strongest framing and composition for each scene), but stock28 gives good advice if you want to print at anything other than the camera's native 2X3 aspect ratio. Some people like a panoramic print for landscapes, but you'll need to either crop very heavily off the top and bottom of the image or shoot multiple shots and use image-stitching software to produce panoramic images.


Some Canon stuff and a little bit of Yongnuo.
