That's it, that's it. And the street scene you showed again was a good deal of what originally got my attention about this topic. For the life of me could not see anything wrong with that "pushed" photo. least nothing wrong with this photo that a bit of color balancing couldn't fix.

"nothing wrong with this photo that a bit of color balancing couldn't fix" - except that the scene was lit with orange sodium light! But maybe that's a religious discussion for another day/night.

(also interesting to read your description of the optics used for this photo)

My trusty Canon FDn 35/2. Now with added Lens Turbo focal reduction - FF on the cheap; love it also with FDn 50/1.4 and 100/2.8. Also with 28/2.8 and 24/2.8, though it adds barrel distortion (-10 in ACR fixes).
