To my (pedantic) way of thinking every photograph is a record, be it a happy snap or a work of art. I personally would much rather see a well exposed and focused record shot than some of the arty farty stuff that gets certain people pontificating. Ranting on about the rule of thirds with one breath then bending over backwards to find excuses why the rule should be broken for this or that shot, and many similar examples. Personally I am quite content to be taking my happy snaps and record shots. I suspect a heck of a lot of members would admit to the same.
