Any good landscapes that are free?

I just want to find some for painting in the future. It's a hobby of mine, I like to paint still life scenes or just photographs and I love doing landscapes mostly.

Go outside, sit down, look around and frame your scene. You have to paint to learn!

Yep, you could always go outside. But, I know what you mean by how you'd like to paint seeing an already painted picture or photograph. When living in a city, especially, it would be very difficult to find a good scenerey to paint.

My best answer is that you could google for good images http://www.hdwallpapers.in/walls/nor...capes-wide.jpg or spend some time in the art galaries or take photos of the art there or anywhere that you can find for starters. I hope that helps.

Maybe I'm confused, but the topic subject doesn't seem to match the discussion. Are you asking why photography is considered art? If so, what is making you think it shouldn't be?

I'm not satisfied that it is.

I guess some of the photographs can be very well called "art" but this is definitely the minority.

I also don't get the point that why its considered an art can someone explain it why.

Junaid..

Why do you ask this question if you consider photography as an artform?

I must say that black and white landscape photography is a good platform to show some creativity with your gear.

This new generation of photographers term black white photography as the authentic form of photography. It is an incredible art which today is practiced by some people at every corner of the world. A photographer while shooting in black and white photography has to enroll how to make use of all these elements (contrast, shape, texture, form and lighting).From the point of view as an artist color characterizes reality and black white photography is an analysis of reality.
If you don't, why do you advertise your photos on an art site

By the way.. Your photography is awesome
