comment How can I make the text in this photograph of an ancient column more readable?
One more step. Put this up full screen and take 4 steps back from your computer. I can actually see them more clearly from a distance than I could from the normal viewing distance.

comment Will the vibrations of a motorcycle be harmful to a DSLR?
I have been driving motorcycles in India since ages. Putting something on tank makes sure it will vibrate as much as the motorcycle would. Best option is to wear on your back and let is rest lightly on the backseat. So when you see a pothole you are going to hit for sure, you can just lean forward or lift your bottom from the seat a bit to stop bag(and your back) from getting a jerk. Capishe?

comment Is it bad to mimic other photographers to compensate the lack of one's creative skills?
You just summed up my photography life in this question. And it is so depressing going through 500px and Flickr that I almost don't browse it as often anymore. Let's just keep doing what we do best... Reproduce the results of other people. What's the harm in that as long as we are not taking away their business.

comment Can a photo app for Android improve image quality?
I flashed a new custom ROM on my android phone and the crappy camera started giving a bit better photos than before. So I guess at system level, the drivers may have some effect on quality but on App level, it all looks same to me.

comment When and why should I consider buying a speedlight/external flash?
Thank you for detailed answers everyone. Though I have marked only one answer as final answer, all of the answers here have helped me. I finally bought YongNuo 468 II ETTL flash. And I am already happy with the decision of buying a TTL flash as it really comes handy at 'quick photos' times.
