My example

My workflow uses LR, which I consider good enough for most of my shots, and then I'll run the photos I really like through Iridient. The difference is apparent with the trees in the distance, but only when viewed at 100%; when set to my desktop background, 13" Retina MBP it doesn't bother me, which is why I use LR most of my shots. I fixed some extra things in the LR shot so other things about it will look a bit better, like the chroma halo on the sky/treeline edge.
