What, except by chance, do technical record shots have to do with art? They're about accurate representation of the subject. If the images are also pleasing, that's nice, but first and foremost they have to be accurate representations of the subject. If they please but don't accurately show what's there they're failures. So I'm with David.
I'm not with you twistytown, and I don't understand why you don't get what seems obvious to me. But then I often take record shots that don't aspire to be art.
