So far, so HDR

Playing with my iPhone over the weekend, I decided to shoot the same scene with three different High Dynamic Range methods. One is the iPhone 4’s in-built HDR, and the other with HDR apps.

This is the iPhone default:

Quite naturalistic. Nice shot.

This is Pro HDR:

More dramatic and vivid, I’d say. A little unreal for my tastes, though.

Lastly, TrueHDR:

This is, I think, my favourite. It’s more moody and dramatic, and the HDR is a little less obvious than in the previous pic.

Cameras that are also computers. So many possibilities.
