Coming to you from Attilio Ruffo, this excellent video tutorial will give you five helpful tips for improving your landscape photos. One simple thing that helped me significantly improve my work has been simply to leave my wide angle in the bag more often. There is, of course, nothing wrong with using a wide angle lens; in fact, they tend to be the bread and butter choice of a lot of landscape photographers, but I found myself defaulting to simply smashing as much of the scene into the frame as possible every time.

Check out the video above for the full rundown from Ruffo.
