About the Image(s)

1. Dark image was before. The sun had now come up so the Low Light kicked in on the iPhone 11 Pro Max. I originally landed to use Lightroom HDR which is considered the best HDR software for mobile devices. Pro Camera is good but second to Lightroom. When shooting original images in Lightroom, I shoot in RAW to give a little more flexibility when editing. This time I stayed with my in camera Lowlight Mode developed by Apple.
2. I then took the image into Lightroom Mobile. Here I used brightness, highlight and shadow sliders. Then sent the image into Snapseed.
3. First I corrected the tilt of the door post with perspective using the auto wand. When it works it is terrific. Used tune image changing highlights, shadows and ambiance. Last tools were Details adjusting Structure and Sharpness. This final image gave me what I wanted for the lowlight with indoor and outdoor lighting.

There is always more than one way to make something work.

If you want great HDR, Lightroom Mobile or Pro Camera is the way to go. Jerry

Thanks for all the details of how you created this image. There may always be more than one way to make something work, but I would be happy just to find one!   Posted: 06/04/2020 14:31:13

Are you using Lightroom Classic or Lightroom CC? Your image really shows what HDR can do. Thanks.   Posted: 06/04/2020 17:46:07

Lightroom Mobile. You can down load it from the Apple App store.

As Dick said there are more than one way to "Skin the Cat". I am going to demo this for one of Dick's photo clubs on the 16th of this month and I will use mostly Snapseed and no Lightroom Mobile.   Posted: 06/05/2020 15:40:11

I meant on your desktop...not the phone. Is your desk top a Mac, by the way. Mine is a PC and I've had trouble getting the iPhone to sync with the PC.   Posted: 06/05/2020 16:08:13

I really do not sync my iPhone or iPad editing with the MAC computer.
The final images do go into Photos on the MAC laptop.   Posted: 06/27/2020 10:17:08

It is amazing what can be done with careful use of editing. The difference between the orig and the final is dramatic. Thanks for sharing your work with us.

Great examples Jerry. I have used the Pro HDR X camera that seems to work fine.   Posted: 06/07/2020 10:34:27

Interesting tutorial on how you used phone's capabilities and apps to completely transform your original photograph. Very interesting and informative.
