As a Newbie to DSLRs and to photography in general, one of the reasons I chose to purchase now is to have a shot at the awesome fall foliage that is only a week or two away in Michigan. However, it seems like these huge, majestic views of red, yellow and orange trees tend to lose something during photography. Now, some may be the angle of the lens (wider can be better) but I think the lack of a focal point can really detract from a photo. Your eye just gets lost in the field of color.

Does anyone have any tips for making interesting landscape compositions, especially when no single focal point jumps out at you? (A barn, stream, sunray peeking through a cloud, rusted farm inplement, etc. ;)) I think it's part of that foreground, sunject, background thing I never learned about.

A single grouping of trees (maybe three yellow, one green) etc. catch single leaves falling mid air with all the colorful foliage as the bokeh. climb up into a tree and shoot downward through the foliage...thats all I got so far haha ;)
