I said that and that, too, is something to consider

That's a pretty cool catch-phrase. For example, consider a grainy photo with lots of motion blur (135 film at f/2.8 1/20 ISO 400, for example) vs a clean photo of the same scene without motion blur (135 digital at f/2.8 1/80 ISO 1600). Which is "better"?

The question is moot. The point is which of these expresses what you, the author, wants to say?

More to the point, what would people think of a grainy photo with lots of motion blur if the viewer knew the equipment was capable of a much cleaner photo without motion blur? Would the grainy motion blur photo transform from "art" to "kitch"?

Or, does the grainy motion blur photo transform from "kitsch" to "art"? Or is any of it art? Or kitsch?

In the end, art is the artist's expression.
