M50/1.7 An old one I kept meaning to post but never got there. Anyway, I was trying to capture the flower. Right after I took the shot I noticed the ant that had intervened so I flicked him out of the way and tried again. Only after downloading did I realise the ant was in perfect focus and the flower had an imposing animal-like (to my eyes anyway) quality about it. I like the relationship between them, if not that they aren't both in focus. Its a moderate crop. K-30.

Taken w/M20. I experimented with a variable ND filter with this shot, but it didn't work very well.

A piece of wood and a mountain bokeh taken with K30 + M135mmf3.5 + PP, should I put the lens hood in order to not get the fringing ??,

You just have to love the colours the M20 can produce. Aren't they grand!

Like your processing here. Leaving the red channel while desaturating other colours can be a bit cliched but works well here with the industrial grunge/moodiness you've put into the broader scene.

The purple fringing is more a function of this lens and a wide aperture. At wider than F5.6 any really bright contrast line will want to fringe to some extent. Moderate fringing will clean up in photo editing software though. I find the chromatic aberrations (green/purple) in the out of focus areas more frustrating. Careful consideration of the background to your subject is the best solution (bright light behind out of focus open trees limbs is a definite 'Avoid'). It's a bit hard to see with the web page resolution of your posted image, but with that narrow depth of field, some of that purple fringing may in fact be chromatic aberrations in mildly out of focus areas.

Pulling the lens hood out will always help with contrast by preventing stray light coming into the lens and bouncing around among the lens elements.

Thanks southlander for taking your time and explaining me the cons of the M 135mm f3.5. I really appreciated that. Definitely the purple fringing is to avoid and not desirable ... As you mention the chromatic aberrations, I am adjoining the original in order you can help me to see if there is in fact a CA (I may excuse with other users of this thread for continuing showing not a nice picture) ?? Cause I think the purple and green come from the original sand color and grass color of the out of focus backwards mountain and a color oversaturation I did ...

Thanks again for your advices,
