Look at the text at banding ring! Pops out, clean.Well, immediately after getting home I upgraded to DxO 6 Elite. Here is my so far very first impression (BTW after moving to DxO 5 I got immediately into some problems and my goal was to check if everything is working as it suppose to be). Here are two images (randomly chosen one and the same image - I was checking if the download is working OK).
The DxO 6 is remembering the changes you made in DxO 5 so it's nearly site by site comparison. My changes over DxO 5 where: instead of Color space "Classic" I switched to "DxO Wide Gamut" and instead of "Deep Prime" I pushed "Deep Prime XD".
Here are the results:
1. Moving from "Classic" to "DxO Wide Gamut" immediately is changing the light balance (in my opinion to better for this particular photo but if you don't like the change go back and decrease the exposure? I'm not sure it will work exactly that way...)
2. Switching from "Deep Prime" to "Deep Prime XD": I still don't know what a hell they did but compare the upper mandible (kind of overexposed!) and the lower neck (the detail washed out by the heat wave coming from below) in between the photos!
I didn't check all the improvements - just these! For me (as I frequently have a problem with the heat distortion) it was worth of upgrading.

Thanks Click!The only bird I got today: White-rumped Shama. First two are identical but first is with PrimeXD and the second with Prime noise reduction. All at ISO 4000 except the last one - ISO 2000 (all with crop-camera and DxO Lab 6). This is my first venture into ISO 4000, I'm going to to go further - to find the reasonable threshold...
These are usually curious birds (this particular one is sub-adult): Here it's checking who I'm...
