what is the motivation for so many pixels. Billboard sized prints? Massive cropping?

Yes and yes. And even moreso, as a full time photographer wanting to distinguish myself from other photographers, when you have something they don't have, it helps a lot.

I do several helicopter charters a year, most for clients, a couple just for myself for stock photography. In dong that, I provide my local market with current stock photos of the area. It doesn't make me a ton of money, due to the flights being so expensive ($1000-1600/hr) BUT what it does do for me is get exposure to the high resolution work I do.
