There's nothing special about this image, but it has a good combination of rather dark shadow and much brighter highlights. My 1D X arrived on Monday, but just before sunset tonight was the first time I could take it out for a spin.http://dropoff.us/private/1342061837-1-AJ9P0620.JPG
The photo was taken at ISO 12,800 and 1/200th. Most of the softness that is visible is due to a thin plane of focus or JPEG compression or slight motion blur, or all three. It's amazing for ISO 12,800. Update: the photo is a 100% center crop from the full 18 MP image file.
Another image: the "X" on my camera wants to say "hi"-- (this photo wasn't taken with the 1D X, obviously):
