Karen,

That's pretty good working from the JPEG!

I went back to the original full-size JPEG and did a quick levels adjustment (not posted here). What I found compared to my Raw version (posted above) is that the JPEG manipulation had much more noise and the tones were becoming posterized. After all you only have 8-bits of data in a JPEG and far less is allocated just to the deep shadows, so this is to be expected. Using Raw you gain access to more bits and a more natural photographic outcome.

Still if a person had to rescue an important JPEG, and didn't shoot Raw, you show that you can pull more out of the shadows than some would think.
