Alternative to Lightroom

OK, I have decided to pass on the Lightroom CC/Classic CC/Whatever and the associated cloud products I'll never need or use, along with Adobe's lifelong monthly money-grab. I'm also not interested in the orphaned standalone version. 

 

This leaves me with DPP, which seems to suit my needs for now. But I have been reading about competing products which, at a small fraction of Adobe's money-grab, seem quite promising. Among them is Luminar 2018 (now $69). This seems to be grossly underpriced (at this time). Has anyone used previous versions of this software? 

 

I am running a Windows 10 machine, not an Apple. I would be interested in your experiences with the product.
