Hello everyone. I've had my D5000 for a year now, my first DSLR and also have been using ViewNX2 which came free with the camera. Despite the fact that I probably need to learn more about post processing, I think I would like to move on.

I have read about DXO Optics but now am wondering if it is even worth it. From forums and other people I talk to, it that Lightroom 3 and/or Elements 10 are good. If there are any DXO Optics users out there, I would like to hear actual testimonials or comparissons to other tools.

Since I am new to this, ViewNX2 is my only basis. I am a mac user and I shoot raw. I understand that Aperture and Lightroom3 are pretty similar and are good cataloging tools-their best feature. I guess I'm not really looking for something like what Elements can do but just for tweaking, to cover up my mistakes in photography, if that's even possible.
