Also, my mind was just made up on the 17 vs. 24 - I just scored a refurb TS-E 24 f/3.5L II on Canon's site with the 20% discount!  Woohoo!!!
Congratulations on your deal. I´m sure you will be very happy with it. 24mm is in general my favorite wide angel. There is an other tread on the subject of what is normal (I think you were on it). To me 24 mm is how I see a landscape and the TS-E is a joy to work with. Mechanically built to last a life time and optically as close to perfect as they come. I´m looking forward to some good posts ;)

(I share your view on artistic and correct by the way).
Thanks for the nice deal, and I started the thread on how people see things in terms of focal length :).  It's definitely my favorite FL and I now have 4 lenses that cover 24mm!  I'll move future posts over to the 24mm thread and I hope to post some great shots over there in the future...

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 :)

That's a fantastic shot. Its crisp and sharp, the lines are so clean and straight. It almost looks like a rendering instead of a photo. Very well done.

Here's a few to my recent shots from Somerset, UK. I tend to use my 17L to correct perspectives in architecture:







That's the moon in the last shot :D
This is one of my favorite "occasional" lenses....when you need one...you need one. When you don't, there are far easier lenses to use!
