Much is written and said about fine art in photography. But occassionally I wonder what really defines an image as fine art? Is there something objective that defines it or is it a very subjective thing - in the eye of the beholder; or the eyes of the viewer? When I see a nicely made LF image, say of a very old door, or a wonderful Adams image of driftwood or the like, I do wonder - what defined this as fine art (regards of how enthused or otherwise I feel about it)? Is, for ex&le, fine art restricted to the realms of larger formats; can a 135 format image be "fine art"; can a street image be fine art? Doe the "artist" objectively decide that "today I will make a fine art image"? How do I know if my "artistic" image is fine art to others? Forgive me if you feel my questions are ridiculous, but they do arise as I thumb through lovely books made up of beautiful "art" images. Do you make fine art images? How do you personally define that; how do you decide that what you made is not fine art?
