Get some Soul

Maybe not perfection. What the intended usage is, may determine taking the extra steps to insure a clean, sharp image at 100%

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.

One reason why the "Camera Clubs" have never appealed to me.

The bird thing you describe, seems more like a technical skill contest rather than making pictures that move you

I like a technically perfect image like the next man, but sometimes an unperfect picture has so much soul that you can ignore the defects.

One of my favourite "imperfect pictures"
