comment What kind of lens to use to get sharp images of people from a distance?
Second photo looks sharp to me too. Can you describe what about it you perceive to be "not sharp"? Which part are you looking at? If you need to zoom into full resolution to see the problem, could you post the full resolution (or a crop of it)?

comment Canon 600D says “Card write error”
What is the exact wording of the error? If it just says "write error" that may not be related to the write-protect lock on the card.

comment Public (or not?) event in Thailand - Who owns copyright of pictures?
Under "copyright law" the copyright ownership always goes to the photographer (with exceptions, like if the photographer is acting as an employee performing work duties, etc), and copyright law is pretty much compatible in almost every country of the world. However, there are other laws, other than copyright, which could affect your ability to shoot in this location, and for that I agree with the recommendation to take your questions elsewhere. Asking an actual lawyer is probably preferable, but law.stackexchange may help.

comment Does using multiple filters reduce the image quality more than just one filter?
My answer to this question may also be of some use. Short answer: yes multiple filters degrade more, but ND filters less so that some others. Put strongest ND filter closest to lens. Also see this answer.

comment Why is there the illusion of detail in photographic noise?
I meant adding noise to an image that already had banding. Dithering is when start with a higher bit depth and apply some diffusion when converting to the final bit depth. Adding noise to something for which you have no higher bit depth source is not as effective but can still somewhat mask the banding.

Edited in response to these comments, I totally did misread the question.

comment Do professionals really never use a 24-70 lens?
I enjoy Ken Rockwell's writing style. But everything of his that I read, I need to remember to dial it down a couple of notches. He's the king of exaggeration, turning every "sometimes" into an "ALWAYS!!!!" and every "this might come in handy" into an "THIS MUST BE USED ALL THE TIME!!!". When you're reading his stuff, remember this and you will have a higher opinion of him and enjoy his writing more. If he says something is "ABSOLUTE GARBAGE, THROW IT IN THE TRASH!!" then it means he doesn't think it's all that useful or he thinks there's a better alternative.

comment Can this glitch be reproduced?
Various artists have reproduced glitches like this for their work, my immediate thought was the album art for Nine Inch Nails' "With Teeth", a technique he used again for his "The Social Network" soundtrack CD. The Social Network blu-ray, I think, had an extra feature where he was describing how he, or the artist, did this for the album art.

comment How could I have counteracted purple lighting?
This is the best edit I've seen - I think this really demonstrates just how strong the color cast was, with the strong green light behind the subjects obviously further confusing the camera's auto white balance. Even setting a custom white balance with a gray card would be difficult in this environment because the light is different throughout the room. Flash would indeed make things easier.
