Aperture Series: Forest Trees at Dusk (S006)

This series shot deep in a canyon at dusk. The light was very blue, and while mostly corrected for color, it is presented slightly cool by intention, because correcting such a dusk scene does not look natural otherwise. This cool light is a serious challenge for any lens because blue/violet light tends to provoke violet fringing. Only strong efforts for color correction will deliver quality results under such lighting.

Adobe Camera Camera Raw 9.1 (441). ACR settings. Camera Profile = Embedded. No lens corrections were used.

Just stepping back and looking at visual impact, at f/2 the image is already impressive.
