Landscape photography that conveys a “sense of place” always tell better stories. In fact, there is a big difference between capturing an image of a touristic spot and one that has a real sense of place.
Anyone looking at this photo will say that it’s a photograph of Mount Cook in New Zealand. Yet, if you look objectively at the framing, Mount Cook occupies perhaps 5% of the overall imagine. Still, it’s such a strong element in the photo and it is so important for the essence of the place - it dominates the idea behind the photograph.
If you want to create stronger images, look for elements that convey a “sense of place” in your photographs!
