I used to shoot RAW all the time then later changed to shooting
high-quality JPEG for most of my pictures to reduce processing time.
That's when I used to spend more time processing my shots than taking
the shots. Besides that, I now tend to use Active D-lighting should I
think the scene would be enhanced using the D-lighting feature.
When in doubt about the lighting of a scene, I'll shoot RAW+JPEG just in
case the color temperature may need to be adjusted or other features may
need to be adjusted, for which RAW is best suited to the task.
However, over a period of time I've come to the conclusion that
high-quality JPEG is very suitable for the type of pictures I like to take.
