comment Why did this photo of the Milky Way turn out badly?
With that many city lights, yes, the problem is pretty clearly light pollution.

comment Nikkor lens for landscape photography day / night
What lenses have you found? In what ways are they good/bad? Create a better question and we can better answer it. The Nikon 24mm f1.4 is great, FWIW.

comment Are modern digital cameras better at dealing with blown highlights than they used to be?
Your previous question is from 3 years ago. I'm sure you know this, but that's only 1-2 generations old. I think the question would be better if this were highlighted and the question asked if the current generation is better than the previous generation -- because that's really the only difference between this and the other question, right?

Being able to create XMP files isn't the same thing as building a Lightroom catalog.

comment People smart collections - similar names problem
@JimL, for what it's worth I just rechecked and retested my Smart Collection filter. It is as I wrote, using "contains" (not "contains all" or any of the others), and this is the only rule in effect for that collection.

comment People smart collections - similar names problem
Perhaps recheck that the keyword actually matches the filter. (Maybe the space is non-breaking or something?) I'm using this technique for a few Smart Collections for this very purpose, also with LR 5.5.

It's a Mac computer, not an acronym for anything.

comment Wise to switch from Sony to Canon considering I have a decent amount of lenses?
If you want more (greater) depth of field, then you want a smaller sensor, not a bigger one.

comment Is it possible to add an aperture ring on Nikon G Lenses?
I just have to mention it because you asked about the AF motor: since the FG is full manual (including manual focus) that means the AF motor and things like VR simply don't matter because they won't work on that camera.

comment How can this visual effect be achieved using Photoshop or plugins?
What effect are you talking about? There are several things that could be broken down from any photo. I'm guessing you mean the color, but perhaps you're interested in the background, the square in the eyes, the expression, the detail in the hat? We need more information.

comment Why isn't saving photos as TIFF files a popular choice by DSLR manufacturers?
A .tiff can be losslessly compressed, but it can also use lossy JPEG compression. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tagged_Image_File_Format#Flexible_options
