This is a HDR image faker. The -RGB Valueshift- (choose the channel with the biggest areas of contrast) and the -Valueshift Radius- are kinda similar to the -micro contrast- and -smoothing- in Photomatix' software, the bomb for real HDR. HP sliders control a High Pass in overlay mode. Sharpen is just that.
