Another HDR Comparison

I was walking to my car today and saw a great scene for an HDR shot. I took two, one with the new version of Apple’s Camera App on my iPhone 4, and another using Pro HDR. This time I brought both pictures into iPhoto and tweaked them to make them look as good as I could.

Here’s the shot from Apple’s Camera App:

And here’s what Pro HDR gave me:

They both look pretty good to me, but they are different. The key with any HDR photography seems to be that you have to pick the shot carefully. I am really liking the concept a lot and I am also doing some HDR with my DSLR and some open source software called enfuse. I’ll have to post some of those sometime.
