comment Wordpress plug-in for a photoblog?
I looked at the autofocus theme that I could install directly from wordpress and was REALLY unimpressed. It has some serious problems on my install.

comment Dust on the sensor, should I be worried?
I would advice against trying the cleaning solution ... if you can't clean the sensor with the blower, have it cleaned professionally. If you screw up, it's expensive to get it fixed. If the pros screw up, they have the resources to fix it.

comment ND filter or exposure compensation?
Some Wolf camera shops are better than others ... in some cases they appear to have been real, higher end, camera shops that got bought out by Wolf and/or Ritz camera. In other cases they are just 1 hour photo processors that also sell cameras.

comment Tips for leading a photowalk?
I agree with this entirely ... taking pictures of an area is a fine technical exercise ... and probably educational ... but knowing about the area makes it more personal and fun (at least IMO).
