white balance helped a lot. I knew that other converters set WB value 
to Camera WB and haven't thought about this. Digikam does this only when you
open white balance dialog.
After working with WB, L/C/G and saturation results where ok. 
So in part it was my fault... But I think digikam should give more support
to the user with creating some good presets, or a good looking image right
after opening it. It's not fair to always compare with Bibble or
Rawtherapee, but with them I open the file and it is quite well :)
But they don't have the ability to organize my pictures as well as digikam

Here it is:(~10MB)
Perhaps you can get it better? Please tell me your settings...

Thanks so far,
