"Underutilized image data?"

Kingston, CA


The benefits of shooting raw are obvious as one can often recover details in shadows and highlights while improving blown-out areas, color casts/white balance and the overall tonal range.

It occurred to me however that since one can often do this, is there often image data that goes unused that could otherwise make images better? Are we often throwing away opportunities for greater dynamic range and/or finer gradations? Is this acceptable because monitors and prints can't make use of this potentially greater dynamic range, and our eyes can't perceive any finer gradations?
