comment Will transfering a TIFF to a photolab via ROES software cause it to lose quality?
It's might be worth mentioning that the processes for printing onto a canvas often aren't usually great at colour rendering. They can be quite limited tonally especially at the cheaper end of the scale (which $100 may be depending on the size of the output.)

It might help if you mentioned your TIFF settings, since TIFF has a great many settings and encodings (from FAX upwards) saying you sent them a TIFF is like me saying I drive a car, could be a Trabant, could be a Porsche... although in this case I suspect osullic has nailed the answer for you.

comment How were these portraits of Trent Reznor lit and shot?
By the look of it the sidelights were slightly behind the subject and the image was tonemapped to hell and back in post as well.

comment Which is better to use : Mirror or totally reflecting prism?
Thanks for that info, would I be safe to assume that producing such a mirror would be costly and that any product would probably need additional protective measures (like a clear glass cover) that would negate the benefit of that sort of material?

comment Is it true that all current browsers and OSes are “color managed” now?
I voted to close this as primarily opinion based. Aside from being based on a number of false assumptions (for example FireFox colour handling is still quite broken for some profiles IIRC.) It also doesn't address the fact that some systems strip out (or rather ignore) the colour profile.

comment Can you estimate whether or not the sky is clear from a photographs metadata?
I'm pretty sure that Satellite imagery does not adhere to the Sunny/16 rule, and if the results were sunny that it might be sun reflecting off clouds. But well done for trying! :)
