So far that's the best way of putting it. The quality helps to stand out but it's not enough. Coming back to the TV problem - well, they tend to chop the reality in order to serve the 'average punter'. The real problem comes when the 'average punters' fed with chopped perception en mass come to decide on vital things in our lives...then photography and arts become least problems on the agenda.
