Coming to you from Mark Denney, this great video tutorial will show you five common mistakes landscape photographers make in the field and how to fix them. By far, the most common I see is including too much in the frame. The standard lens for most landscape photographers is an ultra-wide angle zoom, and no doubt, you can make great images with them, but their pitfall is that you end up just defaulting to the widest focal length in an attempt to cram the entire scene into the frame. Often, good composition is just as much about what you exclude as what you include. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Denney.
