This video is a departure from my usual YouTube uploads. It will be of interest to anyone who wants to improve their photos when using an iPhone.

The background music (Andromeda) is played and composed by Gabriel Tosi. Check out my playlist of his music set to slideshows using my photographs.

You can buy his CD on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/andr...

HDR pro is available from the iPhone App Store for €1.59

Thanks to Pro HDR, you no longer have to choose between a blown-out sky or a hopelessly dark foreground. Bringing high dynamic range photography to your iPhone, Pro HDR lets you capture an image exposed for the highlights and another exposed for the shadows. It then automatically aligns and blends the images, giving you a gorgeous HDR image up to 5 megapixels like nothing you've ever seen from such a tiny device.

Unlike fake HDR apps that merely take a single photo and reprocess it (without actually adding any new detail), Pro HDR massively extends the dynamic range of your camera and produces beautiful results that you have to see to believe. Plus, Pro HDR is the first HDR app in the world with an automatic mode. We also provide an assisted Manual mode for those times when you wish to choose your exact exposures. Finally, you can take stunning high-resolution photos of all those scenes that are just too contrasty to capture in a single picture.

Pro HDR comes with these incredibly useful features:

• Automatic in-app HDR capture, where all you have to do is tap to capture

• Manual in-app photo capture, where you choose the exposure of each image in your HDR

• Photo library support, where you can make HDRs from your saved images

• Proprietary image alignment algorithm that aligns full-size images in seconds

• Seamless image blending creates one beautiful output image nearly instantly

•Live-updating image adjustment sliders to perfect your HDR

• Retina Display support throughout the app

•Fullscreen image preview in portrait and landscape orientation

• Geotagging / GPS / EXIF data saved to your camera roll (requires iOS 4.1 or newer)

• Saves HDR images at the resolution of your camera, up to 5 megapixels

• Share your HDRs with the world with built-in email support, up to 5 megapixels
