comment Is it possible to share albums privately on Flickr?
If all your pictures are public, then everyone can see all photos. You could create a new account for every album, that way it will be difficult to find the other pictures.

comment Are Nikon DSLR sensors actually better than Canon's?
Then maybe one should try to process both raws with the same external noise reduction. Because maybe the difference we see on the current pictures is caused by a more aggressive reduction inside the Canon camera. If one applies enough external processing, the effect of the on chip reduction should be overplayed (unless they result in a truely better final result).

The linked website should have compared the raw output instead of the JPEGs produced by the cameras. This way the internal noise reduction (which is somehow independent of sensor quality) is factored in.

comment How can I improve this picture of my friend on vacation?
Of course, it's best if you manage to shoot a pleasing photograph that both includes a person and the scenery. It's difficult, but that's what I'm always trying to do when on travel with my family.

Or the Sigma 8mm-16mm.

comment How to get clarity picture from existing picture?
Some software might also work out a model for the content of the image (like a face). But I have no idea if this actually exists.

comment Is this xray fogging on my film? Or something else entirely? (with examples)
If it's from X-ray, I suppose the stripes should be spaced half the circumference of the rolled film strip apart. This is because the parts of the film that are parallel to the rays should get a higher dose. The amplitude of this depends on the overall orientation of the roll. If the axis is parallel to the ray, there should be no wave pattern. If the axis is perpendicular to the rays, there will be the maximal wave pattern. All this holds for the scanner using only one direction of X-rays, which I can't confirm.

comment ISO when shooting at night
The fact that it's night adds nothing to the noise. High ISO at daylight will give the same noise. Low light is merely a reason for selecting high ISO setting.

comment Can post-processing save these pictures? (shooting through mesh netting)
What's more interesting to me: How can you avoid the netting (achieve a shot similar to the last?). I guess by shooting wide open, though I couldn't check since the images don't have exif anymore. The AF problem can of course be solved by manual focus.
