Chromatic Aberration at the Beach
Most of the time I’m trying to eliminate chromatic aberration (CA). Whether it’s in HDR or non-HDR, I’m always zooming in and trying to remove this dastardly beast!
Sometimes though, I think CA can be used in an artful way…at least in my humble opinion. Here’s a shot I took the other day at the beach in Pacifica, California, which I intentionally created a bit of chromatic aberration in post processing for effect. For example, you can see the blueish/purplish areas in the foam and also where the water is pulling back from the beach.
What a glorious day it was there! This city usually lives in the fog…it’s so rarely clear down there but when it is, it is special!
