Taken with a Panasonic GX7 and a 17mm f1.8 lens.



























It was very quiet, I saw one other person, a bloke on a bike.

In a few months I'll be picking brambles here and making pies with them, yummy yum yum.

Love the top shot. Getting the detail in, and the "lead in" of the road behind, which are both well framed, was a good effort!

A hell of a lot of CA though. I know you like old lenses Alan, is this one of them?

No, it's a new lens. It's an Olympus 17mm f1.8 and although it's not the best lens ever made CA wise it isn't actually disgraceful either it's just that the picture of the gate is pretty much a perfect CA storm as it's dark against a bright background at f1.8. As you can see other shots taken on the day at f1.8 are nowhere near as "bad" but personally I think bad is the wrong word.. It's a feature  

Clicking on the Remove CA and Defringe boxes in PS5 wouldn't touch the fringing and although desaturating it would make it less obvious it'd still be there as a colour change and the only way I can think of to get rid of it would be to clone it out pretty much per pixel at high magnification.

To get better (less CA) you'd have to do one of a few things...

- Spend a lot more on a lens with probably more elements and possibly some exotic glass but the Oly lens is relatively cheap and very compact.

- Take the picture on another day when the storm isn't so perfect.

- Shoot with a smaller aperture.

Actually I took two shots, one at f4 and the one above at f1.8 and of the two I prefer the f1.8 shot but the f4 shot is technically better
