    probably cause landscapes are mostly broad and portraits are mostly upright (assuming that youre standing)?
    unless of course youre still a baby and havent learnt to stand up yet, then i guess you'd be considered as "landscape"!
    ...speaking of which, anyone ever tripped over a baby before?

    Landscape art are traditionally done in the "long" orientation while portraits are done in the "tall" orientation.

    It's just a traditional way of denoting them as such. Of course, you can take landscape photos in a portrait format (likely to include a lot sky, if that's what you want) while portraitures in landscape format (but it won't make much sense since the sides will be too empty).

    if you are refering to orientation of the camera, yes, landscape means wide and portrait means tall...

    but if you are refering to the subject of lanscapes and portraits, anyway you shoot them is fine.

    Why not just name them "Vertical" and "Horizontal"?

    these terms are not just used for photography...
    look at microsoft word and most if not all word processors and software that can print... they make use of portrait and lanscape in the same manner to describe the orientation of the output.

    i guess its an industry standard.

    vertical and horisontal doesnt mean anything without a reference point stating where is the bottom of the object. because vertical means standing bottom up... and horisontal means on its side.
