    I need some pointers when trying to take a nice picture with HDR. Tips, tricks, or anything I should know when utilizing this feature?

    Simple, get the phone as still as possible.

    And use it when you notice a huge difference in brightness. IE: something under direct sunlight and something under a shadow.

    Contrasting, that's the word I was looking for.
    Here's an example, first shot without and second with HDR. Its Cancun, Mexico.

    Early morning with low light but it can lead to some dramatic photos.

    I don't know the exact term but sometimes the sky turns out 'smoky' especially during sunset. Any idea why or how to counter this? I like how it evens out the exposure but the dirtiness/smokiness of the sky spoils it for me.

    First one without, second with HDR:

    You'll also want to avoid taking HDR photos of things that are moving because it'll create ghosting (double images basically).
    So:
    1. Keep the phone as still as possible.
    2. Keep moving subjects and background to a minimum.
    3. Use when there's contrasting lighting. Ie. A sunny day, but the tree you are shooting is in shadow. In the view finder you see both the shadow and bright area.

    The camera on 10.3+ has auto suggestions to help know when you should use HDR.
