It's annoying only when,on some contests the 2 get mixed together.I mean,yeah,photographers use painting techniques(like Rembrandt light for ex) but still painting and photography are NOT the same thing and I hate when people mess them together.I do consider photography a modern form of art but again,I don't think a photographer experiences the same "giving birth" type of feeling when they take a photography.Some photos make us cry some make us laugh but is not the same type of creativity as painting.

depends on what the photographer is doing, I do some shots that take up to 32 images to make one photo I deffinetly feel the same as I do when a painting comes out well.

That doesn't sound like photography, more like photoshopgraphy. I made up a new word :-)

Wowza! I love it, but then, I'm a sucker for a snow scene.

I'm no photographer but I think multiple shots can sometimes be used when doing HDR photography or panorama's

Meli has it right I am not big on photoshop I do do allot of panoramas and I do HDR but it is on the subtle end and not the cartoony over saturated imagery. My point is that a single finished image can be the result of allot of work and sometimes weeks of planing.

That doesn't make it art.

it does when you are taking things into consideration like lighting, color, composition, etc. Art is not only made with a brush or a pen.

Some of the most artistic pictures that I have taken were from grabbing the camera, pointing and shooting.

So we agree it is an art form I am glad we cleared that up and can move on.

Sure it is, if pointing and shooting can produce art. My point was that hard work and weeks of planning doesn't mean that it's art.
