Absolutely. What is *technically correct*? An understanding of how a camera forms an image and how to record an image with a camera? Then the image demonstrates this understanding, that you know how to get maximum detail and sharpness. People rarely view images with a technical understanding of how cameras work, (except on photo forums), but by how they relate to the world as humans. When I look at tone-mapped and sharpened images where every detail is recorded and shown I don't see the technical mastery of the photographer. I just see how it differs from the natural world I see every day, how the sense of light, depth and colour has been de-familiarised. The image becomes sterile, removed from my experience of walking through this world. The photographer doesn't see this because they've taught themselves to judge images against the technical understanding of the camera and how it records rather than a human understanding and how we see the world. As you say, somewhere along the line you realise this and have to make that leap.
