How does size matter?

No, this is not the umpteenth discussion about sensor size.

It's about image size.

I was prompted to this by various recent threads: how does the size of the picture impact your opinion about it? Jkjond, a DPR forum member, recently wrote : "I tend to see large size for impact a real cop-out with photography".

Looking at pictures on a smartphone, an iPad, a computer screen, watching large prints in an exhibit, can make my feelings different. On the other hand, a good picture should be detected as such, even on a small surface. I can't help thinking that Gursky's Rhine photograph, for instance, has great impact in its original size, and almost none when seen on a phone.

What do you think?
