What about that lavender tint to the snow?
I'm assuming you mean in the middle pictue. I hammered the sauration to get a better look, the sky has too much yellow in too. Dropping the temprature bought the sky and snow back to a more natural colour.

Night mode looks promising. It looks like it takes several passes at the same scene and creates a composite but not in a simple layered way. The process takes several seconds and one I tried had a moving car in it. No light trails from the movement but a car in place like the exposure happened at day light exposure speeds.
The first one is lit by street lighting and looks clear enough.

This one was taken at 10 at night on top of the moors with minimal light polution. You can't see it here but others I took from this location clearly showed stars in the sky. You can see electricity pylons 2 to 3 miles away.

Here's Rochdale, falling away to Manchester at the back left.

I used a tripod for all of these but it was -4C with gusting wind and cold, clumsy fingers. Even though the city light show signs of camera movement the foreground isn't too shabby

I hope you have a lot more luck with yours than I did with mine.
It's already a step change from my old phone and my experience of your P30 too. I'm looking forward to longer, warmer day so I can get out and about with it.

Really getting a kick from the zoom. I'm finding myself trying and looking for shots I've tried before that I couldn't pull off. Quick snaps on these as it was very cold and exposed.

So I'm getting some nice shots with clarity and detail. Here's a few.

I find I'm using some zoom on most pictures. Either as a way to zoom into the action or to back off from my subject and bring the background foward. On my old phone I used zoom vary sparingly as the quality usually tanked out quite quickly but now it's mostly my go-to method.

I like the zoom but rarely go over the 10X optical zoom. The results start looking like I'm using my 5 year old Samsung again.
I've never taken a picture of a wild rabbit on a mobile before though. This is around 60X. Not great but you can see what it is without too much loss if information.
I've also tried getting a picture of a flying hawk but at high magnification I couldn't keep it steady enough in view for the camera to even pull focus on it.

Love this one, the last image, much better (imho) than the version posted previously. I thought that one had a bit of a dodgy sky, maybe a Mobitog problem, but this is a beauty.

One of the things that's disappointing me a little is the poor handling of dark or difficult lighting.

The wall in this pic where direct light from the sun is causing the light distortion is just a mess.

You would need other phones on hand to compare. How would another make/model handle such conditions?

And there's a similar problem with both these in the dark, fine detail of the trees.
Look at the difference between the fine structure in the branches against the bright sky on the right compated with that mess sandwiched between the fake owl and roof.
IMG_20210217_150656-01.jpeg


In this one the detail is mostly good but there are patches where the branches end up smudged again.

I'm thinking this is less an issue with the optics and more a computational problem where the software just shrugs and does the best it can. Not sure if I can explain why I think that's going on but there it is.

Did you use zoom on all of these?

Do you miss Samsung's over saturation? I was looking through some old Galaxy S8 images just now and the colours really punch you in the face.
Not particularly realistic but they have a certain charm.

British hard rock band Thunder have used this location for their new album's art work. Not yours by any chance!
For the record (ahem) I think your image is better.

Thank you and agreed.
They've lit the underside, flattening the shape. It's not even obvious the pipes aren't hollow in that light. They've also taken a low shot looking up giving it an odd outline and completely missing the context. There's a grand northern vista out there and you can't see it. 3/10, must try harder :p

I've not been taking enough pics recently to notice much.
And although I tend to push the sliders a bit further to the right than strictly necessary and end up oversaturated for preference, the better the equipment I get the more I find I'm after a natural feel to my pics.
TBH a lot of my over processing happened because the limitations of my camera led to mediocre pics and hammering one thing or another polished them up into something better than they would be otherwise. Still a fan of overprocessing but there's something to be said for a light touch too.
