I’m finding myself combining apps to do most of the processing. Some apps are better at certain adjustments than others. I’m sure this is the way most photographers work with the iPhone.
Snapseed is the free app for a limited time at Starbucks. So if you don’t have it I would highly recommend heading down to get a latte!
Pro HDR takes two exposures of the same scene to expand the dynamic range (HDR means High Dynamic Range) and does a much better job than the iPhone camera app at HDR.
Both of these images were captured with Pro HDR. Pro HDR doesn’t have great filters, so I enhanced the images with the Camera+ app. For Malahat I used “Clarity” and “So Emo” (plus a fancy grunge border) For Sooke Potholes I used “Clarity” and “Cyanotype”.

I used to take quite a few HDR’s. You can see some here, but I got bored with it. It’s way more fun on the iPhone. No nasty tripod to slow you down!
Thanks to Kenneth Todd for turning me on to Pro HDR with his amazing iPhone pics.
