You've taken the picture, Maybe cropped a bit and maybe done some processing and you are pleased with the result. It looks great on the screen and will print to a decent size, maybe A4/letter. You hit the magnifying glass and sure enough noise is showing and maybe even some unpleasant artefacts none of which showed before you peeked closer. Do you care? Does it ruin your experience? Is it better never to pixel peep because whatever the camera you will always find something you don't like?

Picture over pixel! Every year I do calendar for a local bank. Interestingly enough the winning photo for the cover in 2019 was taken with an iphone beating many FF submissions. It seems art does win over technical quality!

This thread is really full of strange if not straight of weird statements . this one is one among many others

you seem to draw conclusion by mixing the creating tool and the content

also taking a nice picture does not make it art

There's always someone to make an issue out of nothing! Yes the iphone photo was art and way more creative than any other submission.

If you say so . maybe it would  be great if you could share that picture for others to form an opinion

Just reinforces the statement 'it's the photographer not the camera'!

that I can agree with. although it is always better to use a good tool than a barely adequate one
