comment How to know when a digital photo downloaded from Facebook was taken?
As far as I know, Facebook strips the EXIF to avoid people doing that. How about asking the person who posted? Or using Photoshop CSI to discover the reflection of someone's iPhone showing the date in a drop of sweat somewhere ;)

comment Whom to avoid and whom to pay heed to, while getting a critique on my photograph?
Listen to Jay Maisel. It costs $5000 USD to do so and if you don't become a better photographer, you will become a better person he says. Go there with a tough skin. He does not hold anything back and for that price, he better not! :)

Great advice. +5 if I could :) This is critically important because some suggestion may make make the photo worse in your eyes and better in someone else's.

comment How is it possible to create a photo as if camera is moving?
Ask on the video forum. While this was created from a photo, this is much more a video and can easily be done by filming. Otherwise, the amount of work to perform the type of POV change on a single image is demanding and extremely time consuming.

comment What's the best way to shoot infra red?
There was a best but it has been discontinued. Fuji used to make an ultra-zoom which recorded both IR and UV and this let you preview your shots exactly as they will come out, which is not possible with other systems. Maybe you can search used camera stores for a Fuji IS-1.

comment How does exposure fusion work?
Doing it by hand being harder is an understatement! Most algorithms choose a different weight per pixel.

comment What filters should I get for mountain landscape photography?
@IAmAI - The mid-strength ones are more useful I find, 8X or 16X. Plus, the polarizer gives you 1 to 2 1/2 stops of darkening too, so you can combine both to increase the attenuation if needed.

comment How can I make HDR images without the cartoon look?
HDR images have a lot of use outside of photography where they are used to produce very realistic rendering of scenes and interactive environments. With photography our limitation of using mediums of low dynamic range (print/display) means that one can only show a small slice of dynamic range at a time and this what the tone-mapping process is for. Exposure Fusion goes directly from LDR to LDR.

comment Would a Panasonic G3 be able to handle low-light conditions on a South African safari?
@rfusca - That's a bit the point which many beginners miss. With $500 budget, expect $500 quality! :)
