Speaking only for myself when someone posts a photo for critiquing I never comment on technical flaws visible at 100%.

Technical flaws that are small even at 100% can be easily visible even in small prints or small magnifications onscreen.


I don't complain about noise in the shadows or blurryness in the corners like some do unless they ask for it.

Unless they ask for it? Why would you withhold critique when that is exactly what they have asked for? It would be best to simply offer it and allow them to make their own judgment as to how important it is for their overall aim.

Some people want to make others happy, rather than offer real opinions.

Sadly, this is a really huge problem today. It's just like political correctness. It withholds or denies the truth, or completeness of information, to make some people feel good about themselves and their choices, while making things more complicated, or worse, in the long run.

I appreciate the photo for it's composition.

few photographers wouldn't want a camera system that produces less noise, sharper pictures and better dynamic range.

Unless they feed their ego by finding success with a minimalist camera that others could not. I think some guys think that way, that they are better than the rest because they are skilled enough to make due with lesser gear. It's an arrogance thing.

Yep, but ultimately it's an insecurity thing.
