I love Keyshot for the quick stuff, but for really punchy stuff V Ray just seems to really nail it.

You think that because most people use canned keyshot shaders and settings which inevitably leads to the typical keyshot look. If you would set up your shaders and your lighting from scratch and with knowledge about rendering like you have to do it in Vray you would probably get very similar results to Vray. That pros use Vray is usually not because keyshot is lacking rendering capabilities, is is mostly due to other reasons (workflow, features, etc.).
It is like saying KIA engineers are not as talented and hard working as Porsche engineers because their cars don't drive as fast.

Besides, what sets an okay render apart from a really great render is usually not a rendering software but good old Photoshop ;)

This is true, too. I have to stress this to students when their renders come out a bit dull and flat and ask why it's not like examples they see online.

Yeah, we've done custom HDRI's and now use hidden emissive panels and black panels just to get the right cores and highlights on reflective materials. My main complain about Keyshot & Bunkspeed is that you don't get really contrasty images. We always have to "enchance" in PSD.

The same could be say for photography though. The real world just isn't as contrast filled and poppy as we'd like. :D
