Yes, but due to work I have not enough time to look for DIF.:confused:
Maybe I'll find some in my archive, still a lot to check.

Close up!
R5 + RF 100 close to mfd @ f/14, ISO5000, 1/200s +DxO
Uncropped:

Nice shots!

For smaller-than-f/11 shots I've started using LR with the new 'select subject' mask and moving the 'texture' slider a bit to get better perceived sharpness on things like dragonfly faces. I haven't found an equivalent in DxO yet, the 'microcontrast' slider does something completely different.
Without the mask, the texture slider will sharpen up the bokeh, which most of the times will give a very unpleasant look.

I only use DxO deepRaw to reduce the noise and develop the image with LR. The selected subject is indeed a very useful tool.

    Migrant hawker again.
    2nd is a 1:1 detail of the first. Quite pleasing resolution.
    At the 3rd, note that that one seems to only have 2 full legs left. Whatever happened to the other 4.
    The 4th was so far away that cropping almost killed the rest of the details in the wings.
