The Man-made theme consists of landscape photographs that contain something made by us humans. Great examples are a pier, a jetty, a lighthouse, a water tower, a barn, a wave breaker, a boat, etc.

The man-made subjects mentioned above are often a great foreground subject. As a result, they lead the eye into a wider landscape scene. Consequently, the composition often is much stronger. In other cases, they are the main subject in a minimalist style photograph.
