comment Is manual focusing a viable option with the Canon 6D, 100-400 IS L II, and 1.4 Extender?
I suggest that this question is really about whether manual focus is a viable option over slow autofocus, which is why I marked this question as a duplicate.

comment If viewers don't respond to the rule of thirds, why do some photographers still emphasize it?
@MichaelS: I think you're reinforcing my point. Just because you favor symmetry over thirds doesn't mean you are not following rules or not thinking about creating the photo. And, as you wrote, the goal is that the resulting image be better so that the viewer can enjoy it more.

@AbdulNQuraishi: "but what if the viewer is also a art/photography student and needs a quantifiable reason?" Then you can give them one. Composition rules, exposure, lighting technique, etc -- there are always things to talk about with those who want to discuss!

comment How can I use my old Sigma 100-300mm f/4.5-6.7 DL on my new Nikon D5100?
Building on mattdm's comment, I'm guessing your old camera was not a Nikon?

comment What are the advantages of a carbon-fibre tripod with more leg sections?
Wouldn't it make more sense to compare the MT055XPRO3 to the MT055CXPRO3? Both 3 section and the difference between them being aluminum vs carbon fiber.

comment What are the advantages of a carbon-fibre tripod with more leg sections?
I always like to point to dslrbodies.com/accessories/camera-accessories/tripod-101.html for anyone looking at a tripod or head. Not because I believe everyone needs to spend $$$$, but because the progession is something we all end up doing.

comment Does any Lightroom gallery make use of Lightroom’s tags for navigation?
It's not clear to me what you're asking. By "Lightroom's tags" do you mean the EXIF keywords? And are the navigation possibilities you imagine that the user could click those keywords/tags to navigate to other photos with the same keywords?

comment Should I get a dSLR or stick with a bridge camera?
Are you looking at the 3300 or 5300? Those are different classes of camera.

Makes sense, @inkista.

comment How can I tell what focal length a zoom lens was set to for a photo of the moon?
Stating just because it hasn't been: you want to look at the fields EXIF fields "FocalLength" and "FocalLengthIn35mmFormat".

comment Canon 1D mark III vs modern cameras. Should I get a new one?
@Teko: as I understand it, you're asking about keeping an old technology camera or replacing it with a new technology low- to mid-grade alternative -- and that's exactly what the question I linked to is about.

comment What should I consider when buying a lens hood?
You and DLS3141 suggest using "the" petal hood. Some quick searching doesn't turn one up for me. Which petal hood is for the 18-55?

comment What should I consider when buying a lens hood?
@lsrawat: I don't see an option. It looks like there is only one hood for your lens. nikonusa.com/en/Nikon-Products/Product/Lens-Hoods/…

comment How weather-proof is a Nikon D5300?
Arguably not a duplicate, but given that they're both mid-grade DSLRs I think this is a valid question: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/20988/…
