You will recall how I tried that HDR technique last week and it came out disappointing. Yesterday I figured out how to get pictures from my laptop computer into the iPad. One of the camera apps I have in the iPad has a one-click HDR effect you can apply to a photo (among a long list of other effects available). So here is that photo once again with the one-click HDR effect done to it. I can at least say it looks better (much more colorful) than what I came up with following the three different stop exposures, merging of photos and adjustments in my photoshop program. Yet as I said before, this is not me and most likely I'll not be doing it again. The good thing about all of this was figuring out how to get pictures taken with my DSLR out of the computer into the iPad.
The unaltered natural image.
