comment Simulating long exposure waterfall shots in Photoshop?
As with the other answers, the OP has only one image. A solution which starts with "shoot a stack of images" doesn't work.

comment Which characteristics should a wide-angle lens have for astrophotography?
I've made an edit to your question which tries to stop it being a straight product recommendation question, which is off-topic here. You're obviously free to revert this change if you want to, but I strongly suspect the original question would just be closed.

revised Which characteristics should a wide-angle lens have for astrophotography?
Try and avoid this being a product recommendation.

comment Shooting in Manual
What mode are you shooting in? Canons have significantly different behaviour depending on mode.

comment Why would I use manual camera controls instead of the automatic modes?
Consistency is explicitly mentioned in Sridhar Iyer's answer :-)

Got the sensor size wrong, thanks @MichaelBorgwardt.

comment Why do so many photographers still use flash and noisy cameras in concerts?
"Most people use their camera on automatic" I suspect this is less true for people who have brought SLRs to a concert.

Nothing in the question says that the poster is using an adapter.

comment How close are we to the sensor pixel size limit?
Brainstorming, how does the Bayer matrix affect all this? Handwaving slightly, it seems that our red/blue sampling frequency is only half the pixel frequency. Green is maybe sqrt(2)/2?

comment How to set up an object for blur photography in domestic environment?
This is an interesting contrast to @Rafael's answer, which says you should be at the longest focal length. Could you (both!) add an expansion as to why you've suggested what you have?

comment Do I need permission from the photographer to use images taken of me in my personal portfolio?
At the very least, you'll need to tell us which jurisdiction you're in, but the general rule is that, without an agreement to the contrary, the photographer owns all rights and you have none.

comment Equivalent focal length and aperture of 150mm medium format lens on a 35mm camera
I'm fairly sure you want to compare diagonals, not lengths.

comment Where can I find an in-depth tutorial on DSLR photography?
Please don't give link-only answers - we strongly prefer answers to be self-contained. And yes, I know the question is asking for links, which is why it's shortly going to be closed.

comment Is analog gain really actually power-of-two only?
Thanks - feel free to edit that in, or I'll do it when I'm back from holidays and on a proper computer.

comment Will excluding RAW files from iPhoto library increase performance?
Please edit this into your answer rather than posting it as a comment. Thanks!
