Creating depth in your photographs will add interest and perspective to landscape shots. Shooting a person in front of the landscape will provide perspective and scale to your picture. If you want more sharpness in your photos, especially in the fore- and background, opt for a smaller aperture. This means an aperture of f/8 in a general digital camera or no more than f/16 in full-frame SLR cameras.
Make sure you support the camera from below and on the sides, while keeping your arms tucked tightly into the sides of your body. Holding the camera in this way, you will reduce camera shake and make shots that are in clear focus. If you place your hands beneath the camera, you will be less likely to drop the camera.
