A good Reason to shoot Raw

This from the guy that recently posted about shooting JPEG only ...

Was out for my daily walk late this afternoon and took a sky shot or two with the DP2. After post-processing in RT, it didn't look quite right:

Duh, while fixing to update the IPTC meta-data, I notice that it was shot in Fluorescent WB.

Changing to Overcast got it a bit more like I remembered it:

Point being that, had I shot in JPEG only, it would have been quite difficult to fix that mistake and by the time I discovered the error, the moment was long gone ...

Here endeth 'WB 101'.
