An outdoor night shot at Times Square fails to properly balance the lights from the screens, but let's be honest, this shot is almost impossible to get right. The A7 does at least get some details, mostly thanks to how bright the area is compared to, say, the indoor low-light shot where everything feels smudged.

HDR manages to bring out the details of the hotel without blowing out the sky.

The additional lighting from the spotlights help the camera capture the details of the sculpture.

The camera tends to smudge out details in an attempt to bring out a brighter image. The gray cat looks basically like a painting and lacks details on her fur.

This selfie I took at Times Square was the best of the lot even though there's still some slight blurriness. I also have no idea why it was uploaded upside down, so that could be an odd bug with the camera's metadata.

This outdoor shot taken in gloomy weather actually looks pretty good, and you'll spot plenty of details in the distant buildings.

A reflective selfie manages to capture details from the mirror ball.
