comment How to reduce the effect of bright day light in the photographs?
@Anisha The idea of the reflection is great, but the photo is ruined by the bright white and red houses in background. They are not intended to be part of composition, but their color and sharpness demands attention from viewer. A shallow depth of field (not achievable for such a large scene using a small sensor camera) and tighter perspective (shooting and zooming from further away) might help to alleviate this.

@Anisha I edited, hope it's better explained now

comment Are there any options for a very cheap, small, and reasonably fast camera?
I also had a look at DealExtreme offerings, but it's quite hard to tell how fast these cameras are.

comment How does histogram shape affect the aesthetics of a picture?
@ysap yes, I did mean "range" in its statistical meaning (difference between lowest and highest value), not in the mathematical sense (set of input values) - histogram is a tool from statistics. Edited, perhaps it's more clear now.

comment Does the camera tell me the shutter speed it will use when in aperture priority and the aperture and ISO are set?
I see, your definition of correct is stricter than mine. Fair enough, here's your rep back :) There are exceptions where many speeds give exactly the same exposure such as scenes lit only by flash, or light paintings in dark; but that is not the case described in question.

comment Does the camera tell me the shutter speed it will use when in aperture priority and the aperture and ISO are set?
If dynamic range of a scene is larger than the camera can capture, there are several speeds for correct exposure; one speed for desired exposure. In case of a smaller dynamic range than camera can capture, there are also several speeds to achieve correct exposure (not always ETTR). And camera shows comparison with measured exposure, which may not even be correct depending on metering mode and lighting.

comment Does an interchangeable-lens compact camera (SLD) give me room to grow vs. a DSLR?
Perhaps you meant Canon instead of Sony DSLRs having a wide range of used lenses available?

comment What's the difference between the Lensbaby Composer and the Composer Pro?
Have you tried using the black friction ring near mount to achieve desired smoothness?

comment What is the difference between a Canon and Nikon lens cap?
@Guffa good question, edited

comment What tips can you offer for indoor architectural photography?
A tilt-shift lens is also useful when there is a mirror on the wall that would reflect the camera.

comment How does a tilt-shift lens work, and why does it solve certain problems?
Shifting can also occur to right or left, e.g. indoor shots with mirror on the wall.

comment How can I photograph welding?
@Jukka good point, researched some more and edited. Still seems like no filters required.

comment What are some common ISO, aperture, and shutter speed settings for street photography?
I doubt using shutter priority is nearly as common as aperture priority or even full manual. The asker did not specify whether streets will be roamed in daytime, low-light or both - in low-light, lowest ISO will not be sufficient for adequate exposure.

I've heard welding photography is way hotter than wedding photography.

comment How does flexible ISO make shooting digital different from film?
No, lowest ISO will not give you best image quality if using it causes underexposure or blur. Even if your tripod avoids camera shake blur, you may end up with subject blur.

comment What is the “exposure triangle”?
Though being a Libra myself, I still find the scales analogy a bit off... According to this model, when adding a stop of light, I should also add one stop of aperture/ISO/shutter to make the scales balance again? It seems to me like all the blocks should be on one side and "exposed image" on the other side. Use only a few blocks and you won't lift the image enough; use too many and the image will be hanging up high.

comment How does flexible ISO make shooting digital different from film?
It's especially painful if your camera rewinds the film completely, without leaving end of film out of cassette. Then you'd have to rewind by hand in darkness.

comment How does flexible ISO make shooting digital different from film?
In addition to flexible ISO, you also have a flexible white balance - you no more have worry for having correct filters for given light.

comment What does it mean when film turns out transparent after being developed?
A light leak? Light leaks are notorious for letting extra light in, not for letting light coming from lens escape.

comment Is digital zoom really useful?
@mattdm yes, the person was larger in EVF for lining up with a focusing point (quite hard with extreme zoom and subject speed), the files were smaller, and I had to spend much less time at computer. E.g. this picture would've been hard to focus using full resolution - link
