comment How to get clarity picture from existing picture?
You will likely get better results with denoising tool, such as Topaz DeNoise or Noise Ninja than PS alone. But there is only so much any tool can do with such a noisy image.

comment How can I make the most of entry level camera gear?
The hard part is focusing when the focal plane is extremely shallow. Using burst mode (assuming natural lighting) can help increase your chance of getting a good shot. Live view will also make it easier if you are in a position to use it. I didn't have live view for the linked shot (Rebel XT) so there was definitely a bit of luck involved.

For really close macro, hold the 50 (reversed) against the 28-135 (with the zoom set to 28).

comment Beginner photography - Low end DSLR vs mid/high end Point and Shoot/POS?
Don't forget, a lot of P&S cameras max zooms are in fact digital zooms, not optical. This is in effect nothing more than a crop of the actual photo which you can do with the most basic editing software (at the cost of image quality).

comment Why human eye doesn't exhibit aberrations?
My brother experienced this first hand. He got injured and tore his retina in one eye, so he had a big black spot in the middle of his vision. Over a couple of months, the spot slowly shrank until it disappeared. No, the retina didn't repair itself, he still sees the spot when he closes his good eye. The brain just compensates and learns to fill in the blanks.

comment What is the purpose of Quick Mode focusing in live view?
A bit faster?!? It is probably 10 times faster on my 7D in most scenarios.

comment How AF works with lenses f/2.8 vs f/4
This is very camera dependent, obviously you are shooting Nikon, but different cameras have different AF sensors. Some are capable of having all cross type work at f4.

comment Why can't my DSLR with kit lens focus on objects close to the lens?
Wide angle lenses also tend to have pretty short focus distances.

Add Topaz Denoise to that list.

comment Will it harm my DSLR if I keep it on for a period of several years?
I would venture that there are very few people, if any, that could conclusively answer this, as I highly doubt is part of the testing of the product.

comment What is relationship between focal length and shutter speed?
I have also seen some recommendations that with todays higher resolution sensors, you should actually double that speed. The same would go if you have shaky hands as well 8-)

comment What's a good software to combine all the frames in a video into a photo?
Exactly what I was thinking. In fact, since he is taking a video of non moving scene, there is relatively no or little change between frames, so the information he wants to stack simply doesn't exist. You will pretty much just have a couple of low quality images.

comment You have two rooms to build your photography skills, measuring about 12 x 12 feet and 9 x 8.8 feet. What lens/lenses would you buy and why?
The only thing you want to use the on camera flash for is controlling (CLS) your off camera flash, which you will need to get any reasonable results indoors.

comment What shutter speed to use for indoor karate without flash?
Given that he is using an 85mm on a crop sensor, DOF should not be an issue as he will have to maintain a fair distance to capture a half or full body shot. Closer shots showing less of the body might be a an issue though, but for capturing pics of actual sparring matches you don't want to be too close, since it is harder to keep the combatants in frame due to the unpredictable movements.

comment Figure photography - where to share photos?
But 1x isn't a photo sharing site, you have to actually submit and be accepted (unless that has changed), which is not what the OP is asking for.

comment Canon 580EX compatible with xxxEX II flashes?
I know that I can control my older 420EX with a 580EX II, so the protocol couldn't have changed to make it incompatible.

comment What do I need in a camera to take non-blurry photos of a fast-moving child?
Are you sure that your shutter speed is the problem, or the only problem. Auto focus can also cause blurry images if you are trying to take a picture of a moving subject. Basically you can end up focusing on where they were instead of where they are, and shutter speed won't help you with that.

comment DIY motion trigger for use in High Speed Photography?
If you are shooting with Canon, you may be able to use Magic Lantern to accomplish this type of photography for free.

comment How does Canon 70-200 f/2.8 II compare with Canon 300mm f/2.8 II for image quality for weddings?
300mm is great for shooting weddings you aren't invited to. ;-)
