comment Workflow tool for Race number OCR
Having done both race photography and software development in considerable amounts, I doubt pure OCR would give any satisfying results. Perhaps on car races. But on human participants, the bibs are so often folded and/or partially hidden that fixing all the resulting errors would still require sifting through the whole batch.

comment How do I take flattering photos of people with acne (scarring)?
@teylyn The product is a physical filter that takes time to screw on a lens, and the nature of demonstrated feature requires a human model (preferably alive one). The pose and lighting in images looks similar enough to draw conclusions; unfortunately, the low resolution hides any effect of the filter.

comment What is the Rule of Odds?
With just one element in focus, the problem of eye ending up at negative space should not occur. So the effect comes down to how easy it is to visually pair the objects.

comment Is the Nokia Lumia 1020 a suitable replacement for my aging Canon G3?
Support situation isn't that much better in camera department. E.g. the G3 firmware was released around 2003; EOS 5D, replaced by mkII in 2008, received its latest update in 2009.

comment Is there a way to determine if photo was taken at sunrise or sunset?
With a digital image, EXIF timestamp would be my first thing to look for.

comment Better to buy an older high-level camera or newer entry-level camera?
Another option to consider would be an older entry-level camera, letting you try out for cheap if that DSLR stuff works for you and if it does, saving a bunch of money for lenses (which, arguably, should be the priority). Disclaimer: I started that way, bought a bunch of lenses, and upgraded body a few years later, when I knew what I needed.

comment Which prime lens for Pentax?
And the 560mm is missing from this list, too (pushing the 300mm and 31mm down to 3rd and 4th most expensive).

comment DIY Vignette Measuring
A cloudy sky outdoors should act as a softbox big enough for lighting evenly any reasonable sized even surface you might want to use for your tests as long as there are no nearby objects casting their shine or shadow upon the area.
