Ok let me pose the same question here as I did in PN. For a little background I found myself in another of those digital vs classic discussion ( I know, I know, some of you think I will never learn...) and one of the arguments proposed explaining the lower value of ink jet prints in the art market was that they were "mechanically reproduced." To which the digital camp responded that ALL photography is "mechanically repoduced" and that it is merely a craft, not an art (figures, uh?). The arguments explaning this were rather ludicrous and easily opposed, but to my surprised I found myself in the lone position defending photography as art. So I posed the question in another thread. Again to my surprise most of the replies fell on the middle, where people said it was both.....some said it was art, some said it was craft, but the overwhelming mayority said it was both, depending on who was doing it. So, you guys dont get the chance to waffle and be PC, you get only two choices, I will be interested to see what the outcome is here.
