This was also shot with Olloclip wide angle and has been cropped and framed in Snapseed.


One of the main instructions for HDR Pro is hold the camera still, it takes a second or two to change the exposure so this makes sense. It makes equal sense to exploit this delay. The following are from a quick Sunday afternoon walk in the park. First two are DBoy5.05 chasing himself on this scooter. The last is a rotation on a landscape shot. All are variously edited using Snapseed, Dynamic Light, TiltShift & PhotoToaster.
