From what little I know, the term Fine Art refers to the quality of reproduction of the art work, ie the image has to conform to a set of guidelines for longtivity, archival properties etc. Reference has to be made to acid content and stability. It doesnt realy refer to the content of an image as in wether it is "good art", a Turner landscape or a Lanting masterpiece. Remeber Wickapedia cannot be regarded as acurate as its content is based on public postings and opinions.
The dictionary says art is the result of something being man made and therefore anything can be art and anything should be. What is discussed here is what we as individuals like as art. Take a humble family snap shot. A "badly" composed portrait, enlarged and framed in a gallery by a famous artist can cause such a stir of emotion, yet the same image, printed in boots or Jessops, on a desk can be so insignificant. Does that mean it is any less art? As artists ourselves, and we all are!!!! we should follow what is in our hearts and minds when composing images and enjoy the journey.
