ProHDR and Sunset

After a full day of rain on Friday I was walking home from work and the clouds finally broke up just before sunset. I looked behind me and the clouds were nicely lit up by the sun with the restroom doors of our outdoor pavilion just below them. I pulled out ProHDR and snapped a shot.

Around sunset using an HDR (high dynamic range) app can be very useful, depending of course on the effect you are looking for. In this particular case the two typical shots would be those below. Using an HDR takes the best of both shots, which is really drastic in this situation.

Exposure good for the sky.

Even though the picture wasn’t exactly a natural wonder or anything like that, you can at least see the nice effect you can get with HDR on the iPhone as the sun is heading down 🙂

ProHDR is just one of several HDR apps available for the iPhone, but it is still my favorite. I wrote about several others in this previous post.
