But Is This Art?

I have zero pretensions to being any kind of visual artist. But I created the two pieces above, and I think they're genuinely striking and have an odd kind of beauty. So are they art? And are they good art?

(Okay, I'll fess up. I hardly 'created' them at all. They're pictures I took in Turkey, coming down the cable car on the mountain we went up near Bursa, to get the snowy shots in an earlier post. The slight distortion in the pictures relates to the fact they were taken through the misted-up windows of the cable car. But I still like them and would hang enlarged versions on a wall, assuming I had a spare wall to put them on. Banksy, look out.)
