    Try white balance control in your post processing software, Bernard. There also appears to be a lot of chromatic aberration judging by the magenta colors on the edges of branches near bird's beak.

    Hi Benjy,

    Difficult shot to grab. I'm having trouble finding an area that is really sharp. I wonder if this is rather severe crop? As Ken says, also see what pp can do about the chromatic aberrations.

    Hi Bernard.

    Yes, colors look better, but there still appears to be chromatic aberrations judging by the magenta color at the edges between very bright and very dark objects.

    I do not know whether you use any post processing software. Most all of the higher capability programs can compensate for white balance and for chromatic aberrations in the lenses.
