What really makes big sensors produce more appealing images? *Serious*

Def. the skill

At least in the images you have referenced. They are all highly processed. In addition, Shumilova is a trained painter, and I think a trained artist's hand does show in her photos.

I do think that people, who spend more money on their camera are also more likely to spend money or at least effort on learning more advanced postprocessing – that includes paid seminars and classes.

I also think that µ4/3 shooters worry about the DR so much, that they create grey, muddy shadows, with the intention of keeping shadow detail, but robbing themselves of the contrast. I think it's pure insecurity, because 4/3 sensors have been beaten up so badly for their DR.

That being said, I think I have seen some outstanding examples from the m4/3 system, that were bold, clear, and skillfully done.

Here's a few interesting examples done with 4/3 sized sensors:

What I'm finding is that images from cameras like the 5D ii/iii, 6D, Leica M, Sony A7/r, D800/D600 are BOLD. Images seem to be wet, even on my computer screen. Images from M43 cameras seem to have a white sheen over them. It's like there's a certain "fill" that's lacking. Highlights are blown, shadows are muddy, colors are lacking, and there is no "POP" in the images.
