comment What's the reason for this exceedingly blue reflection from buildings in this image?
@mattdm it seems that the reflection from the blue colour, especially if it's coming from a neon source gets overly amplified when compared to real life especially when compared to other colours in the scene

@mattdm I use lightroom to convert my raw images to jpg. The raw images have the same "blue" issues even when played back on the camera

comment Editing or retaking my shot to maximize sharpness, image quality, and reduction of noise.
@mattdm I agree about the question. I wasn't sure what to ask as I think the answer would fall under the category of "a little bit of this and a little bit of that". Any recommendations? Feel free to edit the Question as you see fit

@dpollitt any interest in posting your comment as an answer so I can perhaps accept it. I think I'mgoing to purchase the 70-200 4L and the 17-85

comment Starting out professionally in landscape / nature photography
I'm a professional in the morning, and since I like to do landscapes and travel a lot, I was thinking if it's possible to do this "on the side" type of a deal if that makes any sense

comment Taking sports and action shots with regular lenses
@Itai there are no renting facilities close to where I live, and the event is next week. I appreciate the comment though. I already rent lenses when I go out and do landscape shots.

@mattdm I agree to some extent. But I was looking for specific advice on using those lenses and my camera for shooting older buildings
