A counter to that may be a photograph taken at a 'decisive moment'. It may be that the photographer has pre-set the camera (or even have it on auto), and that the picture might be powerful printed 'as-is' straight from the camera without any post-processing, unusual exposure, etc. As you mentioned in a previous post, the photographer may 'see something, raise the camera and click', but in such a situation, a snapshot with no thought or input from the photographer? Surely there is thought in anticipating the event, and input in choosing the exact moment to click. By your logic, is that photograph taken or made?
