comment Large DOF in low light for portrait in front of a landscape?
Make sure the person doesn't walk out of the frame after the flash has gone off or the background will show through them. They don't have to be perfectly still but any large movements could cause a black outline in the final image, or the background bleeding through.

comment Emulate Gimp's Grain Merge in Photoshop
@Drazick can you explain more about the exact problem you're trying to solve. Overlay blending mode does a combination of Screen and Multiply depending on whether pixel values are greater or less than 127. If you're not after a mathematically precise result it may work.

comment How can I detect upscaled photos?
@mattdm unsharp mask increases contrast, it doesn't create high frequency image content.

@cmason The OP means "concentrated on" when he says "focused", they are talking about an HDR not focus stacking workflow.

comment What type of lens is more suitable for this type of portrait shot on railroad tracks?
You're going to want to use a small lightweight lens for when you have to leap out of the path of an oncoming freight train!

comment Best approach to handle flash with my film camera?
+1 for using a digital camera to check light levels (old entry level DSLR would be ideal). It's not "cheating" any more than using a lightmeter is and will save you a lot of money on film.
