The example you showed is a good one. Recovering detail in blown highlights at the expense of other areas of the picture. I would only use DPP in selected situations on selected pictures.

In the end, most people won't notice the details in the example you provided. Being critiqued on a forum such as this, or by a pro is one thing. Posting the photo on web or printing on a 4 x 6 is another. Most people won't notice the detail.

Unless the picture is going to be sold, hung in a gallery, or used for a specific purpose..raw is not worth the disc space or time; imo.
