You cannot place subject matter and personal preference for a type of image in a box classed "fine art". The very term "fine art" is so badly abused and used by wanna be's as a marketing tool to try and be different. It refers to nothing more than the guide set out for archival purposes.
Is an image taken on a Holga camera, blurred, badly composed, qualify as "naff art".
Does an image taken with a bag of camera equipment costing more than my first house make the image "fine art"? Or is it only fine art because Mr. Ploppyface of Ryegate termed it "fine art" because he liked it? There is no real justification for terming an image "fine art" other than its archival properties. It can never and should never be used to describe a particular type and style of image, colour, black and white or even digital!
