RE: Torn - What To Upload

Well, in that case we have different understandings of the word "artist", I don't like to use it in a futile way.

RE: Torn - What To Upload

"It sounds crazy to me that Photography is considered by many people here not to be an art."

It can be art, of course it can, even aviation photography can be, but don't elude by calling yourself an artist, not every photographer is an artist.
