Not clear to me how your two keystrokes restored the lost detail in the trees, the water, the and the seaweed. Instead, they added sharpening artifacts. At a very reduced viewing size, that might be fine, but at 100% ... it looks awful. The RAW file (from a RAW+JPEG shot) retains all those details. No need to oversharpen to imitate them. I PP'd the JPEG to try as best I could to match the RAW file without adding artifacts from the post-processing. I couldn't match it, and neither have you.

It's fine to me that you like to shoot JPEGs with a travel zoom. I'm not arguing against that. I've looked at some of your images on Flickr and some of them are quite nice. The point of this example was to illustrate that the RAW file contains more detail than the JPEG. That's it.
