Very cool pics Bjorn! May I ask your PP for saturation and so on to render such tones on the street ones?

Attempt at constructive criticism:
The second street shot is far superior to the first one IMHO due to the more even sky and the distorted lights on the left side of the first one.
I'd crop the kitichen shot just a tad to get the corners of the walls out. They are uneven.

Thank you for your feedback! You're right about the kitchen, the walls should be cropped out.

With PP I guess you mean Picture Profile? I shoot in RAW and use LR to fine tune the image. The white balance has a tendency to be a little bit on the blue side this time of the year, so I usually warm the picture up a little. I bring back some of the shadows and bring down the highlights to get a bit more of the sky and get a more even exposure. I add som clarity and vibrance and then I'm done :)

This is what I get with a Canon 50D and 17-55 with IS turned on and fast shutter speeds.

(Click the crop to get 1:1 res)

I have always left IS on when handheld so I can't compare it to non-IS pictures unfortunately, but I have always found the lens sharp and never felt a lack of sharpness

edit: I uploaded the crop as a .png to avoid compression, but I see that imgur has converted the file to a jpeg.
Therefore, I have included the png as an attatchment to this post.

Something is wrong, I have been using that lens for years and almost always had IS turned on, slow shutter speed or not. My experience is that the 17-55 IS is fast to lock on and nails the focus almost every time.

It's a truly great lens
