Default Purple fringing.

These trees have a somewhat strange look about themselves...it's not that bad but is there possibly a bit of purple fringing, if yes is it at a tolerable level?

I agree that some purple fringing is there, but like so many things, your question demands a subjective answer: tolerable for whom and for what purpose? If it's not tolerable for you, then nothing people say here will make any difference, and vice versa.

Personally, the shot has an overall blue cast about it due to the amount of sky and low-contrast lighting, so I'd probably do some touchup in the darkroom, enhancing light and contrast, perhaps playing with the hue a bit.

By tolerable I meant if it's "normal" for this cam to produce this level of purple fringing or it's out of the ordinary. It's most certainly ok w/ me...the colors in the pic might be a bit off because I retouched it while sitting in front of a broken pc monitor...the actual pic (w/o any retouching) might look a trifle more natural.

If you manipulated the colors on a broken monitor that obviously might be part of the problem; I've never used one, but I thought Panasonics were supposed to produce very little fringing.

You didn't tell us what camera you have. That's about what I get from my FZ10. Sometimes it's better, sometimes it's much worse.

Yup it's an FZ10. I guess photographing trees during winter time is purple fringing heII. Well, if I really take a long hard look at the pic it doesn't appear to be all that bad.

I've got a shot of a red shed covered in snow that's really bad where the red meets the white. When blown-up, it looks like the shed has neon trim. It looks like he'll...
