I don't know about "best"--how about least worst?   ???

Honestly, I seem to really struggle with landscape photos (I spent a week in Yellowstone and didn't come away with a single one that I thought was any good)--but this one seemed almost not bad, so I thought I'd share and get feedback.

I'm digging it!  I think you should post some more of your almost not bad Yellowstone images!  ;D

Well I already posted this one earlier in an HDR thread but it also classifies as a landscape so here it is.  My first foray in to both landscapes and HDR.  I need to break out of portraits - too big of a PITA to round up people to shoot and then have to listen to them whine about why they don't like pictures of themselves.  I can do landscapes and scenics anytime I want to.  This was a 5-exposure bracketed shot that was then merged with Photomatix Pro, with additional follow-on processing in Lightroom and Photoshop.  Also my first trip out with the new 24-70 2.8L II lens.

Great job GB!  I saw it in the HDR forum, liked it very much there as well!

Landscapes are my favorite to photograph but I can never really capture the true beauty that I see with my eyes.  The view from the top of this mountain was incredible but the picture is mediocre at best.

Portrait can be challenging for landscapes at the best of times. The rock in the foreground is taking up around 55% of the frame. The (rather boring) sky is taking a further 40% of the frame. The focal point is about 5%. This is not how you will have been seeing it as you admired the vista.

Under mid day white, flat light you will never record the scene photographically as you believed you actually saw it.

I have posted the Haystacks picture in the lens gallery, but thought I'd pop it into the Landscape gallery along with another picture. They are both taken in the English Lakes District National Park, the first from a small mountain known as 'Haystacks", looking towards Crummock Water and Ennerdale Water, with High Stile in the middle, at 2,643 feet. I know many around the world will laugh at that height being a mountain ( not those in the Netherlands  ;D   ) but to us Brits it's a mountain.

Second picture is taken in Borrowdale by the River Derwent, looking towards Maiden Moor, a paltry 1,887 feet.

All on the 24-105 at f11, at which aperture this lens is as good as anything else really, especially after pp.
