As if to prove that the oldies are often the best, I came across this set which, for me, defines the ultimate in photographic art. Has it all: atmosphere, style and grace with a bonus of glamour and not a tiny helping of exotica!http://www.agentur-linke.de/detail_photo.p...fashion&story=7
Please feel free to agree or otherwise, but let's see what you'd like to exhibit in illustration of your own idea. Michael willing, of course.

This is going to be a highly subjective thread all the way
I agree with the other two posters above that the images
are technical well made but that doesnt make them Art.
I have no background or education in Arts but for me sth.
is "like Art" when the composition of its all elements (like in
a picture) combine to sth that is more than the parts alone,
namely sth that reaches my feelings.
This includes technical, visual and contextual aspects of an
image and not only style like in the images you consider Art.
The problem when talking about whats Art and not most often
is that different people see different things in an image. Some
may not see what lays in an image now but will do so after some
time (years). This happens to me at least quite frequently.
When you read about Art and so forth (like on this website
for example) you'll see that ppl always circle around an
exact definition of Art, which is probably a good indication
that there is more to understanding what Art is than to throw
out a vague and unspecific try of a definition (like I did)
