Nik Software's Viveza2...

Viveza2 is a phenomenal piece of software, with perhaps the subtlest engine driving structure in any photo possible. Added to that contrast, saturation and brightness controls, and I contend that it is as close as possible to a comprehensive "one-stop-HDR-shop". Excellent!!!

Rip Jessops

Jessops were very good at pleasing the customer - about a year ago I bought a 2x converter for my Nikon - the guy said he didn't have it in stock - but "he would go to the next store himself" and pick up their stock and bring it back for me within a few hours! He duly did this and I bought a very nice TC20III or whatever it's named. Had the internet not been invented, such prisitne levels of service might never have come to light. Then again, perhaps such pristine levels of service were hard to maintain because of the cheaper alternatives that the internet throws up; Jessops as much a casualty of the web as the cash-crisis. And as said, everyone has a camera on their phone nowadays... I will miss the joy of an odd lunchtime or other savouring the hands-on feel of technology - brand new, sparkling and shiny. Sadly that's a thrill gone with Jessops gone!
