I'll echo spiritualized's comments. The D4 is an incredible machine which puts a lot of power in your hands. The key is "a lot of power in your hands". You have to learn what this power is and how to use it. It is not the same as the D200. It most closely resembles the D3s (in my opinion).

I have never owned or shot with a D200, but I've used digital Nikons since the days of the D100 and the D2h. Every camera has been different, and I've had to learn how to use each one.

As Scotty noted, the D4 image you've posted is a high contrast outdoors action image near dawn or dusk, with varying white balances. The first D200 image you posted is a portrait in incompletely different circumstances - soft, even light.
