Not the greatest example but still ok is this RAW file. At default settings the shadows are too dark. You can bring out so much detail in them by adjusting in most RAW converters.

I have a few others but will need to find the links. Try it and be amazed!

I did a quick pass in a photo editor with the Nikon RAW file.  Yes you can pull back in a lot of shadow detail.  But it doesn't seem like any more than what I'm used to pulling back with a well-exposed Merrill file, such as this one.  Note that it can have the shadow detail brought up a lot more, you can even do so from the linked JPG quite easily - I just wanted to leave some deep shadows in for effect but there's almost nothing truly black:

I guess it is amazing, I'm just used to being amazed by now with the images I edit every day...
