I was downtown taking a new-to-me used D810 on a test drive

I'd owned a D810 a few years ago, sold it, always wished I hadn't, so I bought another one.

I'm strolling around in bright daylight, shooting on M, when I descended into the local bus/light rail/Amtrak station. When I reached the bottom of the escalator I took a pic straight ahead, forgetting to adjust my settings and...

I knew the resulting image would be black and sure enough, it was

Not to worry, though, I took the same exposure into Lightroom and brought it up all up, wondering how much detail I could wrangle from such an unexposed shot

And...

My plan down there was to see how my Sigma 24-70 OS would play with the D810 as I was going to keep the ISO low but lower the shutter speed as well to get a decent exposure.  So further into the facility I was shooting as low as 1/10 second and I did get some keepers shooting that slow handheld...but the results of that are another thread

I didn't work that long on this shot, just curiosity is all. Probably doesn't prove much if anything but, yeah, as Scotty on Star Trek might have said "There be details, Captain"
