revised camera for b&w fine art
Explained some key ideas from the already linked blog. Note that the blog post only tangentially answers the question. Interesting notion in the blog.

comment Why am I getting black photos when I use the Manual feature on my Nikon D5100?
Yes! Now it is impossible to misunderstand it.

I object to your introduction. IMO recommending not to use advanced features to a beginner is wrong. The rest of your answer is spot on but I think the headline will stick with too many readers.

comment Websites with RAW conversion contests?
"A bonus would be if they have some special affiliation with free software raw converters like RawTherapee or Darktable." Now, while you (and me) won't find that very appealing, this is useful to virtually anyone who hasn't bought into Lightroom or Aperture or other commercial converter.

comment Automatically mask out of focus part of an image
@LaurensP: It wouldn't help in this case. I strongly suspect that your question is wrong here: It is a programming question and should be moved to StackOverflow. You could also expand your question to say what you actually want to do/analyse/etc. So far you revealed that you want to analyse branches of a shrub, how and why you didn't say. Maybe clustering and segmentation is an option? Please upload a sample image, while you're at it.

comment Why does my Nikon D5000's AF Assist only turn on in some automatic modes?
@mattdm, it is different in that it doesn't work in live-view. I just checked on a D5100 and being in live-view disables this. Not 100% sure as I haven't confirmed this from the manual but intuitively it makes sense since live view uses contrast-detection.

comment Automatically mask out of focus part of an image
If you have more than one image, (i.e. similar to focus stacking but without actual stacking), I'd have an answer that would give you in-focus masks.

comment Automatically mask out of focus part of an image
This will give you textured areas (with edges). Your use of growing is clever but the result isn't perfect. Look at the inside of the leaf on the left hand side. It is in focus, but not completely black in the mask. I think this might actually be impossible to solve as one can't distinguish between out-of-focus and texture-less.
