    Angry Raw versus JPEG

    As most of you know, my sons wedding was 2 days ago, and due to the weather had to divert the wedding from the beach to my house.. because of the rain, we had to put up blue waterproof sheeting (commonly known as a tarp) didnt really want to say that word, but there you go!! .. consequently, most of my pics have either a blue hue, or quite dark... I have tried my best to remove the color cast in PSE7, and lighten where I can, (which dont really do the photos justice). my question is... should I shoot in RAW or JPEG, what is the consensus.. please I need your help for future reference.. (a bit late I know)..

    I did buy Katrinas 'Get me off Auto' earlier in the year, but havent had alot of time to really go through it... please guide me girls...

    Yes, shoot in RAW. That will allow you to make much better corrections to the image as needed vs. if you shot in JPG. I always shoot in RAW for that very reason.

    Correcting the white balance is much easier in RAW. What a bummer

    do you have LR? or could you access it on a trial maybe? I find it much easier to alter colour casts in LR, even on Jpeg, altho everyone is right, RAW is super editable, jPeg not so much I'm afraid.

    Oh dear! A true-blue Aussie wedding with a tarp!! Yes, raw is the go. I had similar trouble recently with photos I took of birds in a nest. The leaves above cast a green light that was very difficult to remove.
