Do we get too obsessed by "real"?

The thought behind the question of how much do we process our images led me to post a few of my own on that thread.

Thinking a bit harder it occurred to me that we spend far too much of our time trying to make real into "more real".

I have to submit some of my efforts at making a photograph into art. Phart for want of a better word. It is not just a case of running an image through a filter and trying in the process to improve its visual impact. More like destroying the image and calling it "art".

Not to everyone's taste. But it is a valid offshoot in my opinion.

"Endeavour" replica

Miner's cottage Daylesford

Is it art? The sign said so ...

I am sorry about these images, but I wanted to show the sort of "stuff" that I tend to capture.
