comment Why do depth of field calculators show *more* DOF for larger formats with the same lens parameters?
"I removed them and changed my answer" well that's kind of a bummer. Although mattdm summed up the error in my thinking so nicely I had to give him the right answer honors, you're pictures illustrating that DOF doesn't really change with the sensor size were very appropriate.

+1 thanks. Your photos nicely illustrate the errors in my thinking.

+1 That's a great answer Stan but I've got to give the checkmark to mattdm for identifying my erroneous thinking so concisely.

Your first sentence nails it. (face palm for my own sloppy thinking)

comment How do you develop 'creative taste' in order to take a good photo?
It's easy: take a lot of pictures and look at a lot of pictures. Study the masters (Adams, the Westons, HCB, Karsh, Friedlander, Frank, Bullock, Salgado - there's so much to see and learn).

comment How do I keep my tripod mounted camera steady in strong winds?
The only thing I can think of is to set the tripod lower. Wind is almost always at lower velocity closer to the ground, plus the mechanics of the tripod make it slightly more rigid with shorter legs.l Also you could stand upwind of the camera to break the wind - not sure what the ideal distance would be.
