RAW files are great because of having lots of info for processing and recovering, OK!, but beyond RAW lovers imagination, you can also do great jobs from JPGs, in fact I shot RAWs only in very special occasions.

Original JPEG

Processed JPEG

I'd probably get better results shooting in RAW but this is just enough for me and saving A LOT of memory space in my hard disks.

You must be using some sort of trickery there. Everyone knows only people taking "snapshots" ever shoot in JPEG because only RAW has sliders and only RAW can be adjusted, and RAW is like a photo negative that never changes, so that when technology changes, you can go back and spend more hours messing with them, which you can't do with JPEG, because it's "cooked", like bacon, and can never go back to the original, which was never really altered in the first place, because you can't really PP a JPEG, and why would you want to anyway, since it obviously wasn't worth taking in RAW, so it wasn't an important photo, like the one the OP shows, which is destined for Life Magazine, I think...
