Or rather top and bottom as it were. Anyway, this is more just an FYI for those new to photography who may not understand the point in shooting in RAW in the first place. I know it's not the best focus, but it was a quick shot, and quick edit just to illustrate the difference between the 2 images and how editing affects each. I've never seen side by side of an edited RAW file vs edited JPEG. I was curious myself!
This is a quick shot SOOC shot in RAW+JPEG this the JPEG version since you can't post RAW here. You can see it's completely underexposed and worthless without editing.
Here the top image is a quick edit from the RAW file, the bottom image was edited from the JPEG file. The settings I used to edit the RAW file are identical to the settings I then used to edit the JPEG. In fact I synced the 2 in lightroom to insure they were identical. As you can see, the JPEG edited is washed out color and rather bland looking. The darker areas of the image the you can see the detail is lost. While the RAW edit still has lots of color and most of the detail has been preserved.
