RAW v. JPEG And the Winner Is...

OK, my son (teaching old dog new tricks?) has convinced me about the utility of RAW. I worked on the gazing ball picture and was impressed with what I could do in RAW. I selected this picture because of the wide contrasts and shades. The blue sky, which had been over-exposed white (see post below), popped right up. I processed the image in Lightroom and Photoshop, and was well pleased with what I got with minimal work.

Cool. At least you know why you are using one over the other. It's all about what works for you. :-)

Both work for me. If I am concerned about details, especially in hightlights and shadows I go RAW. The kid's birthday party, jpeg all the way.
