comment How to take saturated portraits like these (with natural lighting)?
I would say a lot of post processing. Personally, that is the first thing I saw when I clicked on your links. Colour effects filters or some colour tweaking, noise reduction and sharpening.

comment How to take saturated portraits like these (with natural lighting)?
The linked images are heavily post-processed. It sometimes takes hours to tweak a single image just right. Also looks like the aperture is fully opened and lighting equipment was used. Are you shooting at f1.8? Try applying some portrait colour effects, noise removal and sharpening..

comment Why aren't my night shots sharp even when I shot at ISO 100 on a tripod?
Aside from the shutter release cable (or alternative) which is essential for this type of photography, I also think it is important to zoom in and "micro-adjust" focus on display.

comment Which lens should someone who enjoys the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 get next?
I bought the 18-135 lens with my camera and I can't wait to get rid of it. I took some OK shots with it and the only reason I keep it is that I do not have another wide angle lens and cannot afford a better one right now. You will be disappointing because the images from this zoom lens will not come close the those you get from the prime you have. Borrow it first before you buy.

comment CSI image resolution enhance: How real is it?
LOL, about as real as the satellite imagery on demand zoom-ins in action flicks.

comment Which Canon lens combination should I buy for landscape photography?
@drewbenn - like I said i have not used it. I based my assumption on the lens reviews; "the Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens has many L lens qualities including three aspherical elements and one UD glass element"

comment How does Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM lens perform, and what are the alternatives?
I went ahead with the recommendation in that question and ended up buying the 70-200 f4 L and am very happy with it.

comment Is there any difference between the Sony A65 and A55 other than megapixels?
it is if you do video. 24fps has a real cinematic feel.

comment What is the best 3rd party cheap lens for shooting events with canon 600D?
I've heard good things about this lens. Here is an interesting comparison. I am personally considering either the Tamron or the equivalent Sigma. For parties and similar events though, the sigma is said to have a better IS. (also a higher price though). Do you have the Tamron? Is it really as noisy as "they" say?

comment How do I fasten a Nikon D90 to a tripod head with camera alignment pin?
Maybe you should use a tripod ring on the lens for better balance rather then mounting the camera body. What weight is the tripod rated for? Based on the pictures above you might be pushing the weight limits.

comment Why is Photoshop not merging my panorama?
Thanks guys. Too much ambiguity is likely the problem here. The images are ordered sequentially correctly. In the capture above Photoshop ignored the first and last image then put the last first and the first last. All images were taken on a tripod with the same ISO, aperture and focal length. Not sure about white balance though. I might have accidentally left that on auto which might have contributed to the problem.

comment Why is Photoshop not merging my panorama?
Yes. The lack of features seems to be the culprit. I have just tried a another panorama from a hilltop and everything merged perfectly. I would think though that Photoshop would take the sequential number of images into consideration when merging and at least make an attempt.

comment How can I achieve well focussed and sharp images at long focal lengths?
This lens is stabilized. Was IS on?
