Good suggestion.

The program I use is Photomatix. Extremely versatile and pretty much intuitive. It comes with a small assortment of what they call "Presets" to get you started, and then you can adjust the various settings to suit your tastes and save those separately. Over the years I have come up with 50 or 60 variations that I have labeled and saved as my own. Simplifies the tonemapping phase. Even those, I tweak a bit to improve individual photos when I think it will improve them.
