Comparing a Raw image with a JPeg image

Here I have shot the same image in both RAW and JPeg to show the comparisition of quality and flexability for post production between the two files for your final print

I have edited them both with the same settings in LightRoom and as you can see the RAW file as detained much more detail than the JPeg.

The JPeg image as lost more detail both in the foreground and background and now looks over exposed and out of focus.

The main reason you would shoot in JPeg would be to shoot sports, fast motion images, as the camera is quicker just shooting and saving images in JPeg, as a Raw image takes a slightly longer to save.
