Obviously, the devil is in the detail. Why is the OP obsessing about detail? You do not need detail to know that she is beautiful. Playboy magazine used to airbrush away detail for their vision of beauty. So how useful is detail?


Detail doesn't help much in this approach to beauty, in terms of a beauty of form, or a sensual approach to beauty. I would tend to think that most people would see detail as sometimes a distraction in that event.

But there are other kinds of beauty, and it sometimes relates to detail.

The other question is whether detail is all that helpful in many or most cases.

I mean, I like the detail from the Sigma/Foveon cameras. I truly do. Sometimes it seems closer to reality, and then we could ask, in that sense, is reality what we want?
