Over The Hill: Works for me.

Tech -- From the shadows and time of day it appears you were shooting a few clicks north of due east (azimuth ~85). Mostly backlit, yet no flare. Nice.

Art -- The alternating layers of tree lines that taper in from different sides lead the eye and holds my attention. I can't not scan each profile. And the backlighting make the tree branches distinct, adds character and life to the photograph. The fog filled valley channels provide visual breaks and softens the contrast. Adds mystery, and leaves room for the viewer's imagination.

Good job.

It shows the lack of understanding of photography as an art form, clearly.

Or just lack an understanding of photography as a business. Millions = well done, in my book.

I have 2m (80 inch) large prints made from stitches shot from D3x and Zeiss 100mm f2.0 where you can clearly distingish all the features of people that are 2-3 mm tall.

Those are 300 megapixels stitches.

I would try to stitch and print from your IQ280 with a sharp lens, IMHO a 10 images well perfomed stitch will completely destroy 4x10 scanned optimally.

The evidence is definitely pointing at Dual Scan mode.
What's odd is the first profile I did was single scan and I got a crap profile. So I'm thinking there are multiple issues here. In my case, I think the first target had patches that were too small (smallest the product will allow) and the error checking in the current version just sucks eggs. I say that because in an older version, it refused to accept the measurements and I was done. In the newer version it was happy to take that data and build a crap profile. The larger patch size (9mm) target sucked today because maybe I'm running into the bug you report with dual scan.
In a nutshell, i1P is simply not reliable in terms of scanning with an i1Pro, yet I've had no current issues with an iSis. I'm sticking with ColorPort for the time being but hopefully once this metal profile is complete, I can put the i1Pro back on the shelf and stick with the iSis. I still have to do an optimization of the good profile made today. I sent the CGATs data i1P built to CP and will measure there, then move that measured data back to i1P to build ten new profile. Don't know if it will work, but it should.

I should point out that the bad dual scan profile built to day looked good in terms of the gamut map and the soft proof. My client reported it was way off (way too yellow). So at least with this process, one has to actually make a print to know if the profile is OK or not. The older original profile gamut shape looked awful and it produced an awful print.

... Then again you have the likes of Cindy Sherman and Eggleston that can get millions for garbage.

A wonderful photograph. Worth printing big & hanging on your wall. Or mine, if you don't have room.

Extra pounds? Nonsense.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but your D810 is the one carrying the extra pounds Bernard Wink

Yes, the D810 is a heavier camera.

My new 7D II is going to faster, more athletic, more all-around capable, will perform more tasks ... and (best of all) she has some "new & responsive buttons" to push

I am genuinely happy for you John/Jack.

Please inform if you need someone to take pictures of the box openinng ceremony.

Nothing wrong with a date/description folder heirachy - unless that is your only organisation system.
However add keywords and then you can sort/find by any subject matter you want.

Folder organisation by subject matter is most certainly a complete waste of time as all images can be a multitude of subjects. Been there, done that and moved on.

Import and store everything by date as it's quick simple and easy and can be read/understood by any human, operating system or programme, LR can do this automatically. Once that is done add keywords and you can set up smart of dumb collections to collect your images by whatever criteria you want. These smart/dumb collections are the basics of how you can easily find your work in LR.

The beauty and serenity of this image makes me want to just fall into it!

It is a very different image to anything that I have seen you post but it is absolutely of the best that I have seen from you.
Watching your photography evolve, through your posts, has been a real pleasure, an absolute treat in fact, long may it continue!

But I think if anyone can do it, it would be Sony.

I think the suggestion from the rumour site is that Sony will make the sensor, Mamiya the camera and Zeiss the lenses.
Happily ignoring the unicorns for a minute, I think a digital version of the 7II wouldn't be a great leap from what's already available from these companies.
