Re: Street BW from JPGs as good as RAW

Absolutely lovely shots - especially the first one with the light rays - bravo!

Regarding JPEG vs RAW - if you're going to PP your JPEGs anyway, why not go the full distance and process RAW files? That way you're sure that you're going to get the most dynamic range out of your images?

Although, I concur with Ray that maximising DR is not always a deal-breaker in street photography - I regularly find myself deliberately clipping/blowing my shadows and highlights for artistic effect. Though I'm fully aware that that's not everyones' cup of tea!
