Look for a focal point

Pretty much every shot needs some sort of focal point, and landscape photography is no different. In fact, a landscape photograph without a focal point ends up looking rather empty. And it’ll leave your viewer’s eye wandering through the image with nowhere to rest. Focal points can take many forms in landscape photos. They can range from a building or a structure (such as in the photo above) to an eye-catching tree, a boulder or rock formation, a silhouette, or something else entirely. Also, think not only about what the focal point is, but where you should position it within the frame. The rule of thirds can be useful here.
