Sounds like a snarky know-it-all. I would try not to look at him at all.

I know it when I see it. :) What's up, Waz? Are you back to participate or just checking in?

Just checking in. I may pickup my Nikon and do some shooting just lacking inspiration.

Well lots more challenges than there used to be and the editing rules are a bit more relaxed, so hopefully you'll get the inspiration somewhere. Good to see you back anyway.

I'm gonna print that out and hang it in my gallery (the one I mentioned earlier).

Think about it. It makes sense. The enemy of art, it could be said, is intention.


Brilliant and I couldn’t agree more.

Seems opinions are very divided. After 8 votes my score was 6.875. By 38 votes it had dropped all the way to 5.3889. Not sure whether it would have done better or worse in Best of 2017.

That's a slightly different discussion. My argument was that if you (the artist) don't call your work art, then it isn't one.

The other discussion is whether it is enough to call something art to make it art. This is where we differ.

Well after voting it seems I could have just entered anything..........

I think not. You need to call it art to make it art. If you don't then it isn't.


We will just have to agree to disagree then. I don't think calling something art makes it art. I have looked at the images again, not changed my mind about some of the entries.

To me art is the true expression of emotion. You can express love, anger and even hatred via all different forms of medium. I love the many words about art and Art. I may have seen Art running through my ferns.
