Let me clarify a couple of things. I've had a few PM's about it. The pics of the couple, those have not been edited to the extent of changing the color, contrast, highlights, etc. So nothing major. What has likely been done is a bit of vignette, brightness, cropping, alignment, (and possibly* some object removal). The shots were taken at or near a low-mid traffic airport. Some of the best angles required hangars and inanimate objects to appear in the shot. While most could be cropped down, a few needed touched up using an app that I freaking love for object removal: Handy App. For those who have NOT used it... Let me just say, it's by far the best object remover on the market. It uses AI to determine what should replace the object you removed. You don't have to clone the surrounding area to make it look right. It literally does everything for you. I will be uploading a shot of a cow pasture, and a removed calf as an example. The time it took me to take the picture, and remove the object was less than 30 seconds.

Also, the astrophotography pics... I use the GCam PX 4.3 Mod along with a magisk module for longer exposure and custom noise model. I get that theres wayyy better shots on here than mine, and I'm super jealous of them! but I'm about 20-30 miles in 4 different directions away from large towns, and metro areas. The light pollution is insane. so, if you suffer from a similar situation, I'd highly recommend the gcam PX to help overcome much of it. It allows up to 6-8 minute exposures, and the custom magisk noise model will help cleanup the light issues.

I was actually able to capture the Messier Supernova (nebula) with one of my shots. After saturating it to the max, and adjusting highlights, along with a custom lib patcher to help darken the sky and increase sharpness.. it appeared as a pink nebula. Was one of the best moments in my entire life. (doesn't take much to excite me huh? Lol. It dates back to looking at the stars with my dad as a kid... I miss that dude.)
Finally downloaded GCam PX 4.3 Mod along with a magisk module for longer exposure thanks to this forum. I wish I had them when captured the Milky way with my Pixel 3a, but hey even here close to the city you can benefit from using them.

I'm back with my pixel 3a now, did try the Moto g plus 5g but that wasn't a phone for me. Will be giving this to my son near Christmas and getting a 4a hopefully.

Astrophotography mode no edit or no astro filter. Taken around tea time (5pm UK) so not the best overall time to make for better astro shots.

Nice to see you around mate also nice to still see u in the 3a forum.

Hi Carlos nice to see you too.
Well, nothing interesting in development (im done with rooting and custom roms, happy as it is), phone has no problems, so no reason to bother the forum...
The only interesting thing is Google camera PX mod by Cstark for extended astro photography, you should check it out.
Nice astro photo by the way!

I still do alot of photos check my Flickr collection

I agree there's nothing u can do to want more out of these pixels really lol. Yes I came across the camera px app a few days ago from someone in Reddit but I'm still yet to test because the clouds won't give me a break. I will take a look at these shots of yours now mate I enjoyed coming here to see your photos.

yrs but i cant tell... night images are super. on day time i have "some" trouble with HDR on seawater on sunny days lately, but the rest is ok.. i dont think anything will change for the 3a on next versions
I haven't really tried night shots other than pointing the phone up and getting astro to auto enable I just feel like something is different but I can't grip what it is. I have noticed the file size of the images are slightly smaller though from the 7.* Versions and that's with non of the storage settings enabled. I did take this with the camera px though last night, not as dark as I'd like but give me a 3:15s shot.

    Here is another one with night sight on the 3a:

    This camera is amazing - especially the night sight. Here are two sets of images taken around my house. My old phone (Honor 8) doesn't do a horrible job and it shows pretty well how much light there was (or wasn't) there. The Pixel 3a picture is simply amazing however and the amount of sharpness and detail is incredible considering how dark it really was. All images are "straight out of the camera" and no editing or processing was done by me.

    These images are taken in my dining room. There is light spilling in from the Den (left side) and the china cabinet in the corners (right cabinet is visible, but there is a similar cabinet on the left side too).

    These images were taken of a bedroom in my house. There are no light sources in the room and the only light is spilling in from a ceiling light in the hallway. The shadow on the right side of the bed is actually from me standing in the doorway to take the picture with the hall light behind me.

    You do need some light for the night sight to work. I tried to take an image in basically no-light conditions and the picture came out black. But if there is even a small amount of light, the night sight mode does an amazing job of increasing the exposure all while keeping the amount of noise relatively low.
