Re: Delicious JPEGS Vs unthawed RAW

Since Modern cameras can retain considerable details inside the shadows and highlights of an image, RAW becomes more redundant for the non-industry semi-pro photographer.  Accurate color capture and image processing combined with advances in lens technology has resulted in very clean and well-processed photographs processed internally with the camera's JPEG engine.  All the award-winning photographs that I saw at exhibition recently were shot in JPEG.

Some of the top competitions require the winners to supply their raw files so that the judges can check the degree of processing. This especially applies to natural history, but also to travel and sometimes landscapes competitions.

Most serious club photographers in the UK shoot raw. With products like Lightroom making raw processing at least as easy as JPEG processing, why not shoot raw? (Or raw + JPEG?)

(I'm an amateur photographer).
