    DP review has a link to a giveaway of Perfect Effects 8. http://www.ononesoftware.com/landing/pe8offer So I downloaded it and played with it.

    Here is the original photo (which is cross posted under Spring's a-poppin), which I took because of the contrast of the red flowers with the branches of the bush

    Here it is after increasing contrast and saturation with DXO 9

    and here it is after boosting color, contrast, and a bit of faux HDR treatment with Perfect Effects 8

    I have to say the Perfect Effects version is closer to what I saw in the magic of my mind.

    Cheers, Jock
