Sometimes, even after shooting almost everyday over 18 months, I just have to admit that the D800 still impresses me to no end.
I was watching a football(soccer to we Americans) game at a neighborhood English pub and grabbed a snap shot of my friend who was watching intently. Just a phone camera sort capture, normally a waste of 42mb file space. The only problem the flash did not fire(meaning, I assumed it was turned on and it wasn't). I got busy and did not delete the totally black frame that would normally be culled at the time.

I downloaded the files taken the next day and noticed the black frame in LR dated the night before. I clicked Autotone and the previously silent histogram shifted right and my friend's face popped into view. The slider was automatically advanced for +5 exposure.Uncropped, in a dark pub with dark wood paneling, illuminated primarily by a TV screen 20 feet away. 1/125, 400, 2,8 at 200mm from across the room.
