Serious is when I'm paid to do it, or commissioned, or it's part of a plan to secure a specific image that I wanted more than a little.

Serious photography is different for every person I suspect. For me no photography is serious, its just complete fun and a joy to perform.

I like jonrobertp's definition of serious photography, but I wonder what percentage of camera users ever take a serious picture, and I wonder how different that percentage might be among the population of DPR members.

"Serious" to me also involves intent.  Among my friends and family, I know of just one person who actually plans excursions for the purpose of taking pictures (and I think she's very talented, having her photos accepted into and often winning local photography contests).  The rest of us, apart from test shots to check out or set up a new camera, plan excursions when there's an event or place we want to see, and a camera is taken along in case there's an opportunity to capture a few memories of that place or event.  Some are happy to rely on point-and-shoot automation while others like to have a little more control over the outcome, but the trip is all about what we see and who we're with, not the pictures we might take to help remember the day.
