comment Why isn't my variable-aperture photo more interesting?
@drewbenn - no, what I wanted to say is that different depth of field is not drastic enough change to create an interesting result

comment Lens for Rebel XTi to capture panoramic images?
@cadmium - I think a tilt shift lens is the single most expensive way to solve this problem - even if you want to solve this optically (and ignore the fact that this can be solved using free software) a panoramic tripod head is cheap in comparison to a tilt shift lens

comment Lens for Rebel XTi to capture panoramic images?
@Imre - I've made an acceptable panorama indoors with an iPhone at arms length rotating around me - so while rotating around the nodal point is recommended, and will probably give higher quality, I don't really believe any modern stitching software will have problem correcting photos taken while rotating rotating around the camera's tripod screw (and panoramic tripod heads aren't cheap)

comment Are super cheap flashes worth it?
@PatFarrell - my backup plan for radio trigger failure is putting the flash on camera and bouncing it - but I usually photograph family events with lots of running children, a PC-sync cord it an accident waiting to happen in those situations

comment How do I eliminate lens flare in my pictures?
Great list, just one thing missing - remove any protective filter, cheap UV filters flare like crazy.

Why do you want to upgrade your lens? what do you want to do but can't with the 18-55?

@Joe - I've added a diagram that may help you visualize how much empty space you need to leave when shooting
