I told my wedding photographer friend about this problem and he suggested I get a polarizer. Though, I prolly shouldn't trust his word, I noticed the blue outlines for some of the graduation he shot for me.
What I noticed immediately is that the light itself is very bright; that'll have as a result: harsh highlights, and yes: blue lining.

First of all, I don't think this is a problem of your camera. A polarizing filter could help, but you can also fix some of it in e.g. lightroom. As you prefer SOOC (straight out of camera for those reading), you could try, but it won't guarantee you better results.

What I did in lightroom was taking down some of the highlights and whites, adding contrast, take down the blacks and shadows a bit for more contrast, add some clarity and saturation/vibrance.

Nice, the sky is still washed out but I like that the blue lining, rather than looking like a flaw, gives an illusion of a bluer sky. But is the lining pretty much inevitable if I photograph in a shadowy location on a sunny day? I think I prefer photos that resemble the actual subject matter in color and contrast, so these kinds of imperfections annoy me a bit. Guess I'm still learning how to embrace the minor flaws in my photography.

It may have to do with your settings, e.g. the ratio of diaphragm vs shutter speed. Try the polarizing filter though, might help!

I always shoot with a ~4.0 f-stop (doesn't give me much bokeh but I still go for it haha). that definitely might have something to do with it. and yeah, like you said, i could just edit in lightroom, or photoshop in my case. haha i should focus on saving up for a lens. baby steps. thanks for the help, mate!

For these slightly wider shots, try going to f7 or st like that.

Nice one Tom!

That's cool; I think it should be a bit technical and theme wise; so that it can be done with all cameras, but also that it'll help you to get to know a bit more and experience with new styles!

I like this one! It would otherwise be average, but the barbed wire adds the extra punch that this photo needed Now it tells a story instead of being just a snapshop of interesting clouds.

Thank you , I'm a noob with the technicalities of photography. But it's nice to hear that I get some things right

I'm up for that too. Maybe something similar to r/picturechallenge on Reddit? People submit photos for the first monthly theme, we all vote on the best at the end of the month, and the winner chooses next month's theme, ans it continyes as such.

http://www.reddit.com/r/PictureChallenge
