This is one of the few photos that I've shot RAW. In this case not for the dynamic range, but for the flexible white balance. I realized that I'd need a different white balance setting for different parts of the image. At the time, it was raining in short showers, so I figured I had a minute or so to set the camera up, take the shot and then pack it back into my backpack again. Instead of doing white balance bracketing I decided to just shoot RAW and solve the color problem at a later and drier point. I still stand by my evaluation of the usefulness of shooting RAW - most of the time it is just adding hassle, but occasionally you come across the rare situation that calls for it.
