Sorry, but to even ask this question shows deep ignorance about art.   This kind of false dichotomy is neither thoughtful nor helpful.  Art is not so simple.

OP would be advised to ponder the words of a poet:

Labour is blossoming or dancing where
The body is not bruised to pleasure soul,
Nor beauty born out of its own despair,
Nor blear-eyed wisdom out of midnight oil.
O chestnut-tree, great-rooted blossomer,
Are you the leaf, the blossom or the bole?
O body swayed to music, O brightening glance,
How can we know the dancer from the dance?

Hello Frank,

Some harsh ideas you have, without even knowing me.  FYI, I do know "something' about art, considering that I am Architect!  If you think this thread is "neither thoughtful nor helpful", why did you bother posting?  BTW, I am not into poetry, but thank you.

Have a lovely day!

I think he is saying that creativity and image quality are not measured with the same yard stick.

They both exist independently of one an other. Good or bad image quality has nothing to do with art unless the image quality is an aspect of the artists chosen tools
