comment Why do photos look best without any sharpening?
Got to ask, are you double-sharpening? If you are working from JPEG, your camera may have sharpened things nicely already and you are sharpening the sharpened-result which may look rather strange.

comment How “slow” can I take a picture at a boxing match?
@eWolf - It's a rule-of-thumb and very approximate, it highly depends on the individual and resolution, so people just quote it as 1/F-L regardless of sensor-size. If you really want to adjust it, you actually have it backwards (Canon APS-C = 1/(1.6*F-L) and everyone else APS-C = 1/(1.5*F-L)).

Most cameras work that way. Auto ISO is usually disabled and replaced by a fixed value when in M mode. This makes manually controlling exposure more predictable and consistent when using Bulb mode. Some more expensive cameras do not even have an Auto ISO option in ANY mode. On high-end Pentax DSLRs, there is a TAv mode which is essentially Manual with forced Auto ISO.

comment How to produce a huge photograph on a hard surface?
This seems like a good idea, I'll get a local company to print one of my relatively smaller panoramas and report back the results.

Plaque Mounting is promising. I found several places that go to 8' wide and they either accept prints or do their own on photographic paper of various types. No such luck with Art Block Mounting. I'll report back when I get the first results. Given pricing though, I'm starting smaller to see the quality and finished product.

comment What's the result of stacking ND filters in terms of total stops?
You forgot to explain the law of stackability failure ;) Two 3-stop ND filters = 6-stops, but three 3-stop filters equals 9-stops in the center and 10-stops along the edges due to vignetting.

Sadly they stop at 70 inches... Their products do look nice and very polished.

comment recommendations for photo montage/collage software
Lightroom's feature is not usually called a collage as the photos are non-intersecting and placed at right angles. This is more like a light-table or tear-sheet.

comment Why are there no dark yellows, or bright violets?
Wow! I was just guessing but now that I see all the discussion revolving around languages... it is far more than I expected. Just a lucky guess though ;)

Could this be linguistic too? Some languages may not have separate words for purple, violet and mauve. In which case it would be dark purple and light purple.

comment When should I use manual white balance settings?
@yasp - Yes. Even sunlight varies color temperatures depending on the angle of the sun and season. I guess it just shows more with artificial light. Some cameras have an option for presets to be exact or variable (basically semi-Auto).
