Art or Not?

Hey everyone, help me out here: Is this picture a work of art or should it never have even been taken? I'm still undecided.

I have not been able to figure out exactly what the object lying on the floor is, but, in answer to your "art or not" question, the photo did not strike me as being particularly beautiful or creative. I suppose it depends somewhat on what definition of art one is going by (maybe if you called it modern art...?). In balance, though, I don't believe that it should never have been taken: if you don't experiment, you will never get anything worthwhile.

I quite agree with you, Carmen. You said it very well, so now I don't have to...

Yes, I agree with you both. I don't think it's a good picture either.

In my photography, I'm constantly trying to look at common things in a slightly different way. Sometimes my attempts work, and sometimes they don't. :-)
