comment How to compare RAW photos quickly?
Strangely, I use Lightroom too but find it unsatisfactory for this part of the process, it's just too slow. So I filter things first with PMView Pro on Windows and Geeqie on Linux. I do not think PMVIew Pro reads RAW files, so it does not the OP's question.

comment Why are those green spots on my photo?
If you were concerned about protecting your lens, use a lens hood. Never use a UV filter unless there is flying danger (sand, salt-water, etc) or you want supernatural results ;)

comment What is the EF 28 - 105 mm 1: 3.5-4.5 lens best for?
Note that the 28-105mm is substantially sharper than the 18-55mm, so you can make bigger prints. You can also shoot at over one stop wider at 50mm+, getting more light in and therefore either a faster shutter-speed to freeze action or a lower ISO for better quality.

comment What are the best peak-fall landscape photography locations in the US?
This is an interesting and highly suggestive question but it seems too localized to me, both in space and time :) @rfusca - Please send those 1000s of photographers to me and I'll organize a fall-foliage tour if 1% can make it ;)

comment How do I use a wireless shutter release?
@BMitch - That would make it pretty inconvenient to hit without getting in the way. I almost always use the back one, since my camera has both.

It's been long since I've used a 7D. Try to set the self-timer by pressing the drive-mode on the top-plate and rotating the rear control-dial. See if the camera responds to the remote-trigger then, aiming at the camera's grip.

comment What is a light meter, how do I use one, and for what sort of digital photography do I need one?
Hopefully I've clarified this: In the scene, somewhere that it receives the same light as the subject (not in its shadow).

comment Which camera is more suitable for portrait taking between Canon 7D and 60d ?
@rfusca - It does. This month I was using a D5100 with 95% coverage and it drove me crazy. Once you stop worrying about what might lie outside the OVF, it is hard to accept having to do it again. You can never go back! In theory you can probably setup Lightroom to crop 5% on import and never see the problem ;)

Well, he said 'mainly'... That's why I gave examples, to give show situations where differences would have more impact. The first two points would have less impact in a studio environment. I'd say but they are worth it but worth is always relative.

comment How do I keep the horizon straight when taking a photo (without a tripod)?
Love the K-5/K-7 auto-leveling feature. Its turned on all the time and I think is one of the best innovations. Actually, 18 months before Pentax did this I predicted they would be the one to do that on my blog.... So that is one feature I was waiting for :)
