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%.

And it is certainly yours.

No, it is fact.

But is it universal?

Obviously not amongst those ignorant enough to be using the idiotic term pixel peeping.

Or are you projecting your conceptions of proper photography unto the world?

No, it is fact.

Mind, personally I cannot stand technically inferior images passed of as art, when a little bit of effort could have improved the image. But I cannot go as far as to claim that technical excellence is the only proper way of photography.

Read again what I wrote.

Regards, Mike
