Good question!  Sometimes we do not want detail or realism when we are creating art.  A good article on this topic is the interview that one of the greatest living photographers, Pete Turner, gave in the early 1970's to The New York Times(I think).  In the article he talks about his life as a photographer and ultimately using photography as a basis for other types of art.

You said you like the detail of what a Foveon sensor produces.  I am assuming you are talking about pixel peeping.  To me detail is only relevant in a practical sense.  If I can pick out a Foveon print from all others in a valid double-blind test of same size prints, then a will be impressed.

Some people like to look at detail or tech for its on sake.  There is nothing wrong with that, but it is not part of my makeup.
