Since you shoot JPEG, I think Topaz would be your best choice. I personally did not like it much but that was "a version ago", I have not tried the most recent one. It could not remove some hot pixels, for example.

If you shoot RAW, IMO the best choice is DXO. The downside is that it does not have the colors and the overall behavior of LR/ACR. It is possible to force it to work with a custom color profile but the shadow lifting and the highlight compression algorithms are not as good (IMO) as those of LR.

Thank you, I'll look at Topaz
