Why shoot raw, demonstration
1

So, I was wandering around the city testing out my new legacy lens (I don't know why I keep buying those things, but this is Takumar, I couldn't just walk away) and while sifting through all the crappy photos, I came about this one, which looked completely useless in its JPEG form. I was curious if I could get anything out of the raw file. See below for the answer

Looking at the JPEG, I was not expecting to be able to pull out so much detail in the flower.

And yeah, I know this photo is not gonna win any awards. It's just a test shot, essentially.

But I did manage to snap something nice. Well, at least I like it.
