Re: Mostly agree, except...

Jeff, I suppose that if this was a carefully planned shot and I could mutiple shots and review them on the LCD or set up appropriate bracketing, then I could have got a better jpeg. As it was, I was walking by the mosque when I saw a man in the window, and I just took a quick shot before he was gone (as you can see, he was already about to 'disappear'). So one nice thing about RAW is that it let's you get things right after-the-fact. Sometimes opportunities are such that you don't have a lot of time to do set up in advance (unless, of course you're a landscaper or studio shooter).
