Is it better for me to shoot JPEG as opposed to RAW if I dont do any PP?

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.

Just a final word in this subject. Many times some photographers do use some PP to produce some results that they like (results that may be quite different from the actual shot taken ). Some examples follow. Note that I rarely use these tricks, but they show things that require PP.
