Junior Olympic trials and training for whitewater were held in the local gorge this week so I went over today to shoot the slalom competition. I've shot whitewater competitions before but this was my first foray with my new D800.

My keeper rate went up in spite of the fact that I was rejecting shots I might have kept in the past. AF was quick and precise. The DR and detail obtainable are jaw dropping. Attached are two versions of one of the shots. Neither has any pp except conversion from RAW to jpg and resizing for posting. I love this camera!
