comment Why do breathtaking views turn into “boring” photos, and how can I do better?
Some specifics would be nice. The adjustments are intentionally pushed a bit over-the-top to make the point.

comment How does low-light conditions affect color quality?
There were fluorescent lights in the ceiling (quite far up). The sun was not directly visible, but one of the walls was built with large windows, letting in natural light.

comment Why is my 7D so loud?
As you get higher-performing and larger equipment, it will make more noise. In some cameras, such as your 7D, you can slow it down to reduce noise (see the answer by @dpollitt). Your lens is supposed to be pretty quiet. Try to compare it with another 28-135 to benchmark.

comment What is a good general purpose lens for Canon?
Completely agree, the 24-105 has good image quality and great range. Truly versatile.

comment What are the downsides to using iPhone for HDR?
Based on experience ghosting is a problem for anything that moves. Saturation can occasionally look unnatural. Apart from that the image does not look stylized.

comment How can a high resolution camera matter when the output is low resolution?
As long as you get everything perfect in your shot there isn't much advantage to shooting RAW over JPEG either. Resolution, bit depth and RAW data is all about getting the most from your photo! Small web photo today, 4x retina display or high-quality print tomorrow.

comment Shooting images smaller than the sensor size
You could consider shooting a smaller JPEG along with your RAW, work on the JPEG and then synchronize your edits. Also, if you are considering resizing your image I would consider using lossy DNG compression instead, though it will not reduce the pixel count.

comment Can Lightroom detect corrupted images?
DNGs provide a checksum to verify, but there are other ways. Lightroom could store a checksum per image in its catalog or in the sidecar file. In order to discover the corruption the image would have to be parsed by Lightroom - scanning all your images for corruption sounds like it would be slow.
