There is a group that only shoots RAW, uses manual settings and prime lenses. They are purists and I admire them but life is too short to post process every image so I almost always shoot JPEG. I also tend not to underexpose by several stops. Also, I would challenge anyone to tell me which photos hanging on my walls were shot as JPEG vs RAW.
Keep on doing the right thing my fellow traveler. Processing a raw image is similar to chrome plating a turd. It may be shiny but it still stinks. Have you noticed that those in favor of raw tend to bloviate on the subject while jpegers tend to be brief and concise? Could it be that their replies are overly complex to the point which they themselves become confused?
