K-3 HDR vs. LR & Pentax Digital Camera Utility (Silkypix)

I went to Disneyland over the weekend and gave my K-3 its first real workout.  I played with the in camera HDR quite a bit.  HDR 3 is very grungy looking.  When I open a photo (.png) in Lightroom, the program applies a standard Pentax color profile treatment and makes the pictures look normal.  They don't even look very HDRish, soooooo, I thought I would try it with the Pentax software.  It looks fine in the browser (the definition of fine being grungy like the camera intended), but when I open it in the laboratory the same thing happens, the profile changes it from that bright grunge look to normal colors.  Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix that?

Here's a quick example.  These are both the same picture
