        Are you talking about a vignette?
        I don't believe that's essential for landscape photography alone. I use the vignette a lot in Lightroom, I like the way it focus the image to the point of interest but it can't be over done and shouldn't be obvious unless that's your thing. It's an old darkroom trick so to speak I learned and used prior to digital, often due to the lens abnormalities.

          And I am an old darkroom trickster. But yes, if the first thing you see is the edge burn, you're doing it wrong.

            I agree with all commenters. Learning about design, I was often reminded that if someone notices the typography then it was overdone. Typography is supposed to be felt, not seen. It took a while to get that but I believe the same holds true for many techniques in photography.

              Darkening edges is essential, but it must be felt not seen. I often shape one vignette for the subject matter using the Brush tool in LR and then add a post-crop vignette for the edges. That technique is changing now with the ability to erase sections of a radial gradient in the new versions of Lightroom.
