Artists? Us?

Saturday I was asked to judge the photographic entries at the Orchid Society of Ottawa's show. The photos were grouped in with the oil paintings, watercolors and sculptures of Orchids. The lady judging the sculptures showed me some that she said had taken months to complete. It was the same with the paintings, days or weeks to complete.
Our photographs... 1/125 of a second.

Yes, I realize it is more complex than that. But as I looked at the other "art" I couldn't help but think that we photographers have a lot more to learn if we want to call ourselves "artists".
