Yes definitely shooting RAW. To get the most out a shoot like this, you need to flexablity and 16 bit depth of RAW. JPG is only 8 bits and when editing this is a limiting factor over 16 bits. Also for a shoot like this you need graduated neutral density filters to lower the dynamic range of the scene in order for the sensor handle this. You need to block some of the light from the sky so that you can capture both it and the foreground without blowing the sky out. Good Luck.
