When I'm showing pictures from a trip to friends, I prefer to display the picture on my FullHD 50" TV rather than pass around small prints. In some cases, the picture contains multiple subjects and many interesting details, so I switch to 100% magnification and show specific parts which include details I consider worth focusing on. In practice, I use the same technique people use when pixel peeping (100% magnification), and if image quality is lacking it's tough for me not to notice it, though I don't tend to point to technical shortcomings. Would you call this practice "pixel peeping"?

Well...If I were showing photos of a trip I would consider that my friends may be more interested in the trip than my gear performance or skill as a photographer. So when you are saying you are doing 100% crops I'm hoping the details are in regards to the subject rather than simply showing off the detail itself? If so that's not really pixel peeping. That would be if you were trying to impress them with how your gear performs.

If, in my lifetime, I will have produced just one image that makes a real difference in the life of another, I will have achieved my highest goal as a photographer.
