Our way of looking at the (Dutch) landscape is strongly influenced by the art of painting. For many photographers making a picture that looks like a painting is the highest goal. Afterwards they want a print on canvas.
IMO this is completely wrong. Photography has the means to play with vanishing points and perspectives. Of course a painter can also do this, but a photographer moves more around before the scene is caught on the sensor. This results in more vivid images compared to paintings.
A photograph also has a greater sense of time.
