I use MaximDL for most of my processing. Since the center of the cluster is so bright compared to the rest of the image, i use Digital Development filters to suppress the center while bringing out the outer parts. Then in Photoshop I select this center part with heavy feathering and layer it on top of the normal stretched image. This works well for some galaxies too where the core is so bright that it saturates before the outer parts show up.

Great image Roland
What is your processing method for images of globular clusters to bring out the detail in the center ?
