I display my images on the big screen 4K TV at my camera club meeting every week. We do a lot of bird photography here in South Florida and feather detail is a big thing. If the image looks good, the first reaction by the moderator of our sessions is to zoom in for that feather detail.....and if there is noise or artifacts it jumps right off the screen, every time.

So, you bet, before I embarrass myself in front of 50 or 60 other photographers, I'll Pixel Peep every one.

If I was a member of a club that elicited embarrassment from members when publicly displayed images showed noise or artifacts, I would show them pictures of those lens test lines with stick figure birds drawn on, as it seems that would be more to their taste

i seriously would


Where did you ever get the idea that my friends and club members would seek to embarrass me...…. If there is any embarrassment it is in my own mind. Call it a character flaw, but I want to do the best I can, in everything.

I guess you all must be some sort of people that seem to want to make the case for just "good enough".
