RAW instead of jpg

I think most of us here, myself included, shoot RAW explicitly. I learned long ago of the benefits of doing so. So if there are any out there that still need convincing that RAW is the way to , then take a look at what I was able to recover from this shot. Here is the original out of camera.

And what I was able to produce in Photoshop using a mixture of camera raw, NIK Color Efex4, and the traditional Photoshop tools.

Quite the transformation, wouldn't you agree?
FYI: Photo was shot with D800 and Tokina 11-16 f2.8

One should never 'take' a photo but rather make one.....the only thing you should take is your time.
