My impression of pixel-peeping is that it is an overemphasis on pixel-level image quality.

There's no such a thing. Pixels make up a digital image so. All of them are important.

Pixel-peepers are perhaps more interested in the performance aspects of their cameras than in making photos.

A proper photographer is not only seeking artistic excellence but also technical excellence. Something as fundamental as maximizing image detail and sharpness can only be properly detrmined by viewing at 100%. Back in the film days that would have been done under a loupe.

It doesn't seem from your original post that your primary viewing intent is to show your friends and family the pixel level performance of your camera. You're doing the enlarging to see more details in subjects that are your main interest. To my understanding this isn't pixel-peeping.

The term pixel peeping is applied to people that view their images at 100%. It's an idiotic term.
