After seeing landscape images from Flickr, Instagram, etc, seems like most people associate landscape with visual beauty (ray of light, long exposure water, highly saturated sky, misty fog, golden hour, etc).
Now this is the context of my question: I mostly shot street photography, and I think visual beauty is not a necessary element for it. Some prefer funny, juxtaposed compositions (think Martin Parr). Some like bizzare, journalistic-like approach (like Daido Moriyama). Some take shots of boring, everyday objects (like William Eggleston).
It seems that landscape photographers and street photographers have different mindsets, no? For landscapers, visual beauty is a necessary. But for street shooters, not that much.
