I just had to post the image with my question because it is truly amazing to find high-technlogical advancements make it possible for photography to imitate art; and then I came across the recent ManilArt - Asia's Latest Contemporary Art Fair; and found this one by an amazing artist: EJ Cabangon's "Bull Ride" acrylic on canvas. I did not waste time to take a photograph of this awe-inspiring piece. I checked the result of the shot and compared it to the actual artwork and found I could not tell the difference, and now I wonder too if anyone for that matter could.

I had to touch the canvas more than once to be sure it was acrylic...I am certain photomasters here can replicate the art here in photography with equal aplomb...

    My opinion about photography is simple; yes before it was about recording moments, true to the eye and moment in time, nowadays few remained puritans, and yes photography had become art, it can be pushed forward than just to press the trigger. The technology have advance so much, that even a person who is unable to draw a line can transform a photograph in magic piece of art work. Photography is a controversial subject, difficult to define, unless someone wants to debate, and that will be an ongoing discussion, which will never end!
