    I found out what the actual problem is.

    Later on I recognised this and tried to open using photo-->rightclick--->photos which is another photo view is windows 8 my pictures are bright and looks good .
    I dont know why my pictures are compressed using windows photo viewer.
    Now I have updated to the latest NEF codec from nikon website and the problem solved.
    You do need any photo viewer. Just load Nikon Vie-NX which came with the camera (or down load it). Open the RAW files and see the difference.

    RAW images that come out of the camera are pretty dull. The reason is that they are 12-14 bit images, where as the monitors are 8 bit. So unless you fit the 12-14 bit colour depth to 8 bit of monitor, they will look dull. As far as PP is concerned, you need to set up the following parameters in your PP program (I use Nikon Capture NX-D), to get the best out of your RAW.
    . White balance
    . Sharpness
    . Exposure compensation
    . Brightness
    . Contrast

    If you want vibrant colours which just pop up, try "Vivid" picture control.

    As others have said, most of the digital DSLR produce similar looking RAW. It is post processing that brings life to the images.

    Remember the camera is the tool, you control what it does...

    And as everyone has said a bit of post processing goes along way to make a photo. If you do not want to PP then shoot Jpeg, but if you want the best photo under the circumstances then shoot RAW and EDIT your 'good' photos.
    Scott are you suggesting RAW only or does RAW+Jpeg make a difference?

    If you want to edit the file shoot RAW, if there are times you dont want to edit the image you can use Raw + JPEG and then you can just use the JPEG but have the RAW to edit if you ever want to

    I've been shooting raw+jpeg since I got my camera. Maybe I'll just try raw for awhile...

    I understand that, I'm curious if the raw files in raw+jpeg are different than just shooting raw.

    I like the capture program, and I've been playing with raw therapee as well.

    The RAW files will be the same either way. Shooting RAW + JPG just means you'll have two copies of each shot; one will have been processed by your camera (JPG) one wlll require that you process it (RAW).

    D3300 Picture quality not satisfied.
    I have read in other thread that for jpeg one needs to set in camera sharpness to 7/8. But this seems to be making even my RAW images over-sharpened. Today took a photo with sharpness increased in camera setting. This can be seen in full size RAW in ViewNX 2 on my pc. I suppose ISO 200 should not make the seen difference. Attaching herewith a shot converted to jpeg with 1000px wide and without any processing. The sky is looking way too sharpened. May not be visible due to reduced size jpeg. So does the sharpening setting affects the RAW also?

    I always suggest +6 or +7 because I think anything more is too much, but that's just my personal opinion. If you think it's too much, though, you can back it off.

    I believe View NX does apply the in-camera profile to RAW files which would include sharpening. That being said, I'm unclear on what leads you to believe the shot you posted is over-sharpened? The sky appears flat and, with the exception of some wispy clouds, is pretty much featureless. Over-sharpening would show up more prominently in the fine details of the bridge and that I'm not seeing. I'd need to look at the original RAW file to determine anything more.
