The thing is , that while conducting your privet social experiment here , keep in mind , that beauty in photography field is subjective and in addition to two groups detected by you , there might be another one , which simply don't like the picture , nor from technical nor esthetical side .

Now days the line between fine art photography and P&S is very unclear.

Enjoying and appreciating an image requires education. The fact that some people can't understand or enjoy it is due to lack of education or experience. Of there is no wrong or right when it comes to art. But there is good and bad.

Yes. While there is certainly subjectivity in appreciation of art, there is a difference in not "liking" something and not "getting" it because of lack of education and experience, as you say, and ignorance. To look at a Picasso or a Monet and say "It doesn't look good", or to say a Charlie Parker solo has "too many notes" exhibits ignorance, not an opinion.
