Post production to digital photography is what the dark room was for film. Only it's so much easier to access and play with. The process is endless. Below are two images. The first has some post production for maximizing what you can do to match what you see with your eyes. Cameras cannot capture all that you see without a bit of adjustment. It is all in the digital image. But you have to pull out and push back areas to create the balance you are looking for. The second image uses a preset designed by KimKlassen.com.
