10 top tips for taking amazing travel photographs

Seljalandsfoss is one of the most-photographed waterfalls in south Iceland. The slippery wet path to the back of it gives an unusual perspective. Pop a 10mm fish-eye lens on to your camera and the result is remarkable. The setting sun lights up the wall behind this stunning cascade only a few times in the year. October, when this shot was taken, is a good time to try.

This effect is achieved with the camera on a tripod, and a three-second exposure with a six-stop ND filter.
