    In terms of art, there are applied arts and fine arts. Applied arts is used in practical application like commercial photography while fine arts is displayed in galleries and museums. But they are not mutually exclusive. Some photographers as most know do both.

    Fine Art is to the eyes what Fine Dining is to the palate.

    I think fine art is basically a synonym to a masterpiece. Meaning, a work that has been produced in order to show off the skill of the artist, done with the greatest care and attention to detail from actually creating the work and then presenting it. It's possible to analyze what makes a specific work of art "fine art", but there's not a lot to analyze when it comes to fine art in general.

    Fine art? A bunch of so-called experts who don't know anything throws out chicken bones and studies the pattern the bones make, and decides if it is fine art or not. If you see somebody advertising his/her work as fine art it probably means the person hopes the photos transcend mere snapshots or quickie journalism. Not that they do transcend, necessarily, but that is the rough idea.
