I definitely feel like photography is an art! Even though many feel that anyone can pick up a camera and snap a photo, I guarantee you that a skilled photographer with a trained eye can produce so much more with the simplest of subjects! Why do you think it is such a big industry, and why do you think brides and grooms and so many others choose professionals for their big events? Because not everyone can produce a masterpiece with a camera. I wish someone could do a test. Take 10 people, and have at least 2 or 3 of them professional photographers. Give them all the same camera and the same subject. I bet you the photos would be drastically different, and I bet you'd see the skill of the professional right away!

This is an imagine from my country,Romania - This is an imagine from my country,Romania,the country where you can find sea,the only sea from Romania,the Black Sea,and many mountainsthe most famous mountains from Romania are Carpatii.They are in the middle of Romania.Romanian nation is very proud of all that,and most important in our country is The Castle of Dracula.
I believe that photography is an art,and when we see a photography we can realise what would the artist shows us with that imagine,maybe he had some feelings when he made that photography and it was something in his mind.The artist is the only that could choose something interesting for us,and we can admire his work only after he decide to shows us what he has prepaired.

photography is an art. while there is obviously a scientific component in it, photographers have got be real artists to see the right angle and fill in a frame in the most perfect way possible.
