I've noticed that i get a lot of chromatic aberration on my photos...I thought you can only get it on f/2.8 or something like that...I was photographing on f/14 today and still all the trees got this awful blue blur around...Is it normal or i do something wrong? thanks!

here are crops from pics

f/14 1/200 70mm iso200

First off it's chromatic aberration.

Second there's nothing in both photos. The blue you're seeing is just the green leaves blending into the sky. That's perfectly normal.

Here's what blue chromatic aberration would look like in trees :

You can stop shooting with trees as a background :tongue:

No but seriously I don't can't see why you hate it so badly. Oh and you can go back and edit the title, just go to edit and Go advanced.

First pic, I see no CA.
Second pic, there might be some. The tree in the middle of frame and blurry, but the size of photo make it hard to see. Anyway, I don't see much problem with your pics. Maybe post the full version?

not seeing any in the first pic either..the second might have some since you have a very bright background (sky) against some darker colored leaves, but i think thats fairly expected and i dont really see any big problems.

CA is the failure of an optical instrument to focus different wavelengths (colors) of light to the same point on the optical axis. The visual artifact is color fringing along the borders of dark and light areas, like the example in another reply above. Usually, the further you look from the center of the image, the more pronounced the effect.

I see no CA in the examples you posted. The background simply looks out of focus (which is intentional, correct?)
