When looking around at HDR and Tone Mapping, and looking at the examples on the Photomatix homepage, I see examples that read:
Result after applying the Tone Mapping tool (Original RAW file converted into 16-bit image with exposure adjustment of -1)
So apparently one can create a "better" looking image with just the RAW file? (or maybe not)
Anyways - this made me wonder if there is a one-click-solution to get a "better" JPEG from the RAW file than what the camera produces itself? Or is raw only valuable when doing some manual post-processing, tweaking the right stuff?
