For me, Fine Art Photography would be defined as something that might adorn a gallery wall and be generally perceived as something of an attention grabbing image. But, as Geoff Wessex indicates, there are many "so called" fine art images not fit to adorn toilet walls.
I do hate the images that show photographers have have striven too hard to be different and created rubbish in the process, and are then feted by "so called" experts for artistic interpretation. But, hey! This is just my opinion. Photography is subjective. One mans meat etc.
I have a huge portfolio of images and am in the process of enhancing many of my best colour images to produce colour/mono or sepia toned or indeed cross processed photos that give a new, improved life to any particular shot or scene. I would define these images as fine art. Not quite in the mould of Man Ray; Eugene Smith; or Ansel Evans, or indeed " The Master" Atge.. But, in my eyes these 4 photographers, to name but a few created what I call Fine Art Photographs. Images I can look at and think........... Wow!
