comment What properties of an image could be used to programmatically discard it as “bad”?
I would certainly look at blown highlights as a factor.

comment Nikon D3 - Cycling of aperture values
If the aperture was fixed at f/2.8 and the shutter speed remained as set by you, how did the exposure change? Does the EXIF information hold any clues? Did the ISO change? Does it perform as expected if you set the ISO to fixed instead of auto?

comment How can I remove brightness from the bottom of a concave plate?
I think the issue is reflection from the light at the window. Please try the same shot with the window blocked or at night and then compare.

comment Is the Nikon 80-200 f/2.8D ED outdated?
I am happy with mine: flickr.com/photos/chili5558/8757083179/in/photostream/lightbox Having said that, it is a bit heavy and, if I were buying today, I'd also consider the 70-200mm f/4.

comment Lenses round ..Photographs square shaped why?
@OlinLathrop Because it is much easier to make a square or rectangular canvas stretcher than round. craftsy.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/step03.jpg

comment D7100: How to adjust default settings?
That's not how I read his statement: "Specifically I would prefer to set the default quality to RAW instead of normal large JPEG."

comment How do I read the shutter speed from my light meter?
I believe the arrows above and below f/16 and ISO 200 indicate that you may change the value to whatever you wish; f/5.6 for example. As you will therefore be admitting much more light, expect the shutter speed to be shorter, 1/30th, perhaps.

comment How can I keep my camera warm while photographing time lapses over a few hours of 25F / - 4C temperatures?
I use chemical heater packs, as well. In my case, toe warmers; easily available and inexpensive. benmeadows.com/images/xl/…
