The fence shows it fairly well, but the back of his shirt outlined in red (plus several other objects in the rest of the frame) all showed it. The RAW has a lot of CA and the JPG is perfect!

But the raw is a processed jpeg... Run it through the Sony software and you'll get the same result...

I'm sure you intended to express that the other way around Jamie.

To Gary,

All images start as raw. The camera processes the raw and produces a jpeg (while embedding a small jpeg in the raw).

If one is more satisfied with the jpeg, one is saying the cameras skill at processing is greater than one's own. It's human nature to mock what one doesn't understand. I'd suggest picking up a technical manual covering the software you use to post-process, or using some of the many resources available on the web. Post-processing images is a skill like any other. No one is born with the ability.

As far as the image, there seems to be questionable exposure and composition choices aside from processing concerns.
