First shot posted taken in RAW, but converted to JPEG for processing since I don't have Adobe RAW or NikonCapture. Looks much sharper and more vivid than my full-sized JPEG shots at the same resolution. Any image processing buffs know if RAWs generally perform like this over shots taken in JPEG, even if they're converted to JPEGs after the fact? Thought it might be b/c all compression was done by software and not the camera itself...?

This is the view from slightly above what is, to my best knowledge, the most popular snorkeling site on the Hawaiin Islands. We went and tried it out for the first time. I never realized how difficult it is to breathe only through one's mouth, but enjoyed it nonetheless.
