    I've had a few instances recently where the camera on my 920 doesn't do great. Typically with bright sunlight. Attached is an example. I reframed after this to get a better light balance by removing the dark area, but sometimes you compromise the picture when you do that.

    An HDR mode might help these, so I guess getting an HDR app might help. Any other suggestions?

    Check out this thread.
    Yes. Not much in there that would help with this, other than composition which is what I did. I even suggested HDR which is not even mentioned in that thread, which can bring out light and dark by taking multiple exposures and post processing. Any other suggestions?

    You can use the backlit scene in the camera, mentioned in that thread. You could purchase a camera app like ProShot which gives extended functionality, too. Alternatively you could use a technique quite a few people use called photo stitching, where you take a picture focused on the light levels of the background and then another tailored to the foreground and use editing software to composite the pictures together.

    HDR can be applied with Fantasia Painter. Result looks great, though you'd have to apply and save each photo separately.

    oh man I never even used that scene mode, it rocks and would seem to help with the OPs problem! I wonder how extreme it can handle.

    The backlight mode in the default camera really helps for those type of pictures!!!! Also, I think that your pic once taken, click the 3 dots and apply the auto fix which normally will give you a better lighting also...

    Let us know
