Hmm, on second thoughts...
Just can't get DxO to look natural and and now able to pull much more from LR. DxO looks ok till you do a side-by-side with LR and then it's chalk and cheese, at least with my efforts. So far I haven't had time to master the highlight recovery and shadows controls in DxO and for the stuff I'm playing with (Japanese forests and temples in bright sunlight) that's pretty critical.
I know LR pretty well and clearly don't know DxO at all well so please ignore my findings above.
As usual, it's good to listen to other people but only trying it yourself is the safe way. I'm sure Bernard knows DxO much better than I do.
