comment Do different lenses affect noise level?
If you use the same settings with different lenses and the light remains exactly the same, the noise level will be exactly the same.

comment How is this effect created in Photoshop?
Cranking up Clarity would do the trick pretty well I would think.

comment Issue with Object focus using canon 1100d
You need to give us much more information I'm afraid, and, preferably post images with the corresponding settings shown.

comment Issue with Object focus using canon 1100d
Are you using auto focus or manual focus? What settings are you shooting with? What kind of light are you shooting in? Is it focus blur or movement blur? There are many factors that can contribute.

comment how do I get this effect in photoshop please help
mattdm's point is that it's not clear what 'this effect' is. It looks like a snap shot in unflattering light as far as I can see.

It does have the advantage of drastically improving sharpness though...

Out of interest, why aren't you using a tripod?

comment 50mm f/1.8 or the 40mm f/2.8 STM?
This is off topic because A) it's about product recommendation and B) is somewhat subjective and down to your personal preferences. FWIW, Neither of the lenses you mention is ideal for landscape photography, and given that a longer focal length is better for portraits, I would go with the 50mm.

comment Nikon D3100 taking black images. Stuck shutter?
As you have watched the shutter getting stuck, it seems fair to assume this is indeed a stuck shutter. Take it to a Nikon authorised repair shop: not something you want to tackle yourself really.

comment Image in focus at the back (LCD) but not when shown in computer
This doesn't answer your specific question, but good grief, open your aperture up! There is no need to have the aperture anything above f8 for this kind of photography, and you will be able to boost your shutter speed considerably - enough to reduce the camera shake you're probably getting at 1/200

I know a little Python, but LaTeX is as arcane and indecipherable as ancient Venusian as far as I'm concerned! I will leave it to wizards such as your good self :)
