Yes, of course I agree .
Technical details of great masterworks I look only after I have seen it many times and for long time. For example photos of Bresson - at first I say wow, then after 10-20 minutes I look in composition, geometry, enjoying in beauty. Then after I have seen it for more than ~10 times, then I start to look technical details, little imperfections if they are there, bokeh, thinking which film, which lens and so on.
