Sunbursts are governed by the lens’ aperture blades.
Heaton happens to be “English” lol, you can skip to the CPL and filter set portion near the end. And his subsequent vid shows you how he stacked it in Ps:

Very interesting video. Will definitely try the Focus Stacking technique when I find a composition that would benefit from it. Thank you ⬆

Now I'm wondering about sunburst. Why you have it so pronounced. Most of my pictures with bright objects either don't have it or it's barely noticeable.
Edit: Found the answer. Set your aperture as high as it can go (at least f18). But if I set it that high, I'd need a tripod

Yes, I edit all of my DSLR photos in lightroom. I try to make my photos look the same as reality looked to my eyes at the moment of taking picture.
Your iPhone X example is a good illustration of what I'm trying to avoid. Sky looks overexposed and reflections look underexposed. I'm not saying your photo is bad or not pretty, but it's just not how I like my photos to look.
I take many pictures that can't be reasonably taken with any phone, unless I stop caring about quality.
Low light with very bright background
Super low light example
This is how I like my sky and reflections to look

Absolutely no need to apologize. Perhaps I used the wrong word. Our eyes and brains are all different, so we all have different perceptions of reality.

I sometimes can't agree with my wife if a color is a shade of green or shade of blue. It seems we can even have different interpretation of basic things like color spectrum.

Reviews are not very promising: "its lens is very soft, which greatly affects image quality"shahram0 wrote: ↑Sep 4th, 2018 11:56 amI've been using a Canon G9x for the past year and I absolutely love it. The zoom is limited, but all the other functions are fantastic for a truly pocketable camera. It's with me almost as often as my phone and I often pair it with a Gorillapod. It's definitely a versatile and affordable option.
Everything in this album was taken with my G9x MK1:
