Well, this is the first picture I've ever entered in a challege that I shot in RAW and then converted. I just can't see (at this point) that it really is worth it to go through the extra trouble. When you resize down to 640 pixels so much detail is lost. It is handy to be able to change the white balance if you need to and remove some noise without degrading the picture, but; right now - I'm thinking it doesn't make the picture any better. I'm going to edit the jpg of the same shot and see if there is a difference.

Editing: Convert from Raw; crop; levels, saturation, contrast, resize, sharpen.

Lovely picture, I like how you made the trees the frame and not something man made. Very smart. Parts of the trees seem a little dark though, well, I know there isn't much you can do about that but, maybe for the future...
