The first thing lost in jpeg compression is not detail, but contrast information. High quality jpegs are a bit like high quality MP3 audio files. It is very difficult to demonstrate the loss.

What you get with RAW images and TIFF and PSD files is a wider dynamic range, which allows you to revisit the interpretation as your skills and your software improve.
