HDR on the iPhone

The addition of HDR algorithms to the iPhone camera was for me, the prime benefit of iOS 4.1. I use it on occasion. This set of images shows the benefit of HDR.

Can you guess which is HDR? I thought the first image was, since the areas of shadow seem to be lighter. I didn't like it. To my surprise the second image, the one I prefer has had the magic math applied. It seems more like why I saw that evening.

When I use the HDR feature, I am always careful to check the results. It is not always better. But usually, at the very least outdoor photos are tweaked so that the sky is not blown out.
