I wish this took better pics of black cars but I'm guessing it has a hard time focusing.

It struggles to lock on to my car even with nothing else going on.

Does the sky in my night shots look uniform or is there visual "levels" of black into blueish? They look fine on my laptop but the sky on my phone looks off...probably b/c the brightness is turned way down.

viewing on my laptop id say its fairly uniform, but my eyes are not as acutely tuned to those kinds of nuances as yours are. Its darker up top and gets lighter as it gets closer to the ground, but its a smooth transition

The night shots are fine. The camera software cranks up the ISO to capture the low light conditions then it applies a bit of smoothing to help reduce the spots and blotchiness.

For good night photos really need a camera with a big sensor, like 36x24mm and a fast lens, like f/1.8 or larger. The newer mirrorless cameras do well in low light conditions, as well as most full frame DSLRs. It lets you shoot at lower ISO and keep the shutter speed fast enough to not get blur while not using a tripod.

The phone does do a really good job with all the photos. Color are nice and rich, almost to the point of over-saturation, which you might be able to dial back a touch.

Was good seeing everyone last night.

For what it’s worth the Facebook “hint” is what reminded me of this. Keep that shit up.

Also enjoyed the looks from a couple of the corvette guys who definitely thought I was parking too close to their pride and joy in Turd Ferguson.
