Best place for your question is simply to go to the Macro share forum...it's an entire forum on this site with nothing but macro photos.

Of course they could be used for landscape, they just have the ability to focus up close too. I have seen some good shots of things not close up taken with Macro lenses. Just a matter of how you use it.

Nice shot Jordan. Yes, the macro lenses (apart from the specialist MP-E65) focus out to infinity and make good short telephotos. I often use my 100mm on the stars.

Macro lenses also make for great portrait lenses but can be brutally sharp..

Long exposure (about 3 secs)

Tripods are good things to have in a kit.

Seconded! In my opinion the most overlooked piece of photo gear.
