Light Tracks with Slow Shutter App.
Very cool +1. I think I like the first better because it feels very controlled and complex at the same time.

Was the last shot where I got kind of the trick. Was an xMas decorated house.
But like the colors of the second (illuminated canes).
Some iPhone 4S photos I took in Napa using Pro HDR - not a bad little app.

Joe - these look great. I was just mentioning last week that the color around here seems so much more intense this year.
>HDR Pro - not a bad little app.
Of course it helps to have a tripod or something to steady your shot.
The app lets you edit once it has merged the exposures - it gives you sliders for brightness, contrast, saturation, warmth, and tint. It also lets you crop and has some built-in frames.
Btw - I got the name wrong - should be Pro HDR!
Thanks. I know the app but holding steady is hard for me :-)
>work better than the native HDR in terms of lining up the images
Yes, the native is not good in aligning and also over-sharpens a lot.
Too bad the developers don't get access to the faster frame rate of the native app. Any idea how many shots are taken by the native app?
Using the TiltShift Generator

There shots are brackets from the 4S (using the app "Bracket Mode") and then aligned and HDR on the Mac.

Uwe - these are great
Hard to beat the convenience of on-device apps but these results are impressive.
Here's one I processed in Snapseed - taken in Capitola on a 4S.
This is fast becoming one of my favorite pp apps.
>This is fast becoming one of my favorite pp apps.
Very nice app but I would like to have it with presets and reproducible.
Lots of great work being shown!
I just went to the App Store for Bracket Mode and it said installed. LOL. I have too many Apps! Need to go back and reorganize my folders.
FilterStorm Pro does that. I use Snapseed most of the time, but one of my photo workshop friends now uses FilterStorm for everything. I know pro is on the iPad, not sure about the iPhone.
>FilterStorm Pro does that.
Does what? You mean: I would like to have it with presets and reproducible? Filterstorm is clearly on my list.
Word of caution about Photo Stream on iPhone:
If you load images from your Photo Stream (even full resolution 4S images) into any app for editing the image will be down sampled to 1920 pixels wide. The same image will show full res in iPhoto or Aperture.
My Filterstorm findings: Very convoluted UI on the iPhone.

Joe, your tree alley is still one of the best iPhone photos I have seen. I never hold that still to avoid alignment issues on the iPhone (no problems in CS5).
>I have to break up my photography apps into two folders
I have 3-4 folders.

From my morning walk:
Thanks, the second one is nearly as shot.

Nice Uwe. I really like the wall with the vine--and the various processes.
Interesting processing (tilt shift app?).
Some crop (35mm or so is a bit wide):
Chicago's Millennium Park Cloud Gate
Shot straight up from inside.
Basis bracketed shot from IP4S, later used HDR, ToonPhoto and blending on the Mac to blend.
Woody, handheld or tripod?
It's surprising to me that there's not an app that I've been able to find that just lets me dial in -2/3 stop exposure and flash correction.
>I've been able to find that just lets me dial in -2/3 stop exposure and flash correction.
That is no surprise. The iPhone does not give any api to define direct exposure values. Instead the app defines an exposure point where the iPhone measures the exposure. The HDR apps use a shadow and highlight exposure point. With the app Bracket Mode you can define these points manually. That is what I use.
iPhone 4S + Snapseed:
So snapseed allowed you add blur to the corners. Neat.

Actually just one of the many random grunge filters.
Crop and not a pano :-)
Cool shot. Interesting that the shadow in the foreground is so straight
I really like this thread. Here we find good photographers using a cheap tool effectively. There are many apps and and guides, but this thread shows some inspiring work.
The best tip I have gotten so far is the news that the camera does not take the photo until the finger is removed from the click spot. That has improved my timing immensely, as well at reduced camera movement. Makes street photography work.
I did some testing to see how the quality compared to a Leica M9 and was surprised to see how helpful Pro HDR was for still shots.
The testing can be viewed here:
Interesting to see how effective low light can be captured if the camera is stable.
This is one of the shots used in the test.
