  1. FTR, The image in question was one of my initial 4, so it was inspected. See if you can find any CA: http://i1194.photobucket.com/albums/aa362/OregonColin/CCH_6687_zps1tyawjkc.jpg
  2. Moderation is key, no doubt. There has never been an instance where I've moved the clarity slider past 25%, and even that is on the very rare occasion - usually below 10%.
  3. Why not use the Remove CA tickbox in LR/ACR. Works wonders on lateral CA in general. Because I find it doesn't get it all, and though it's not one of my best qualities, I'm a bit of an anal-retentive "arse" (can I say that here?). Since using the tickbox I don't find it necessary to check for CA myself unless there are very high-risk areas. I'll keep that in mind, and maybe take another look. I'm encouraged by Alamy QCs seemingly less stringent than my own exacting standards. It's always good to have an opportunity to ease up on the PP.

  5. My two-cents: Shoot RAW (Nikon NEF), and in ACR you can get the effect you're looking for by using the "clarity" slider. Also, Google's NIK has some decent contrast plugins in their CEP4 set.
  6. Thanks all, the image in question passed initial (my first) QC, as did all the rest. I'll be honest, after reading in these forums how many folks get failed for seemingly small imperfections, I was certain that all four of my images would fail miserably. I use the color blur layer method for CA removal, and obsess pretty heavy about it, but I have one lens (Sigma EX 10-20mm f 4-5.6) that I love dearly, but suffers from considerable CA at anything below f/ 8, and at any aperture in high contrast lighting, and editing can get tedious and time consuming, resulting in missed CA when it's not very noticeable. Anyway, thanks again, and I look forward to being part of the Alamy family.

  8. Hi all, I am new here, and am looking for some clarity on the subject of chromatic aberration. With regards to Alamy QC, how stringent are they when it comes to CA? Specifically, will they, more likely than not, fail a photo if it has, say, barely noticeable CA (@ 100% crop) in an OOF background? When I say barely noticeable, I mean you'd have to really search for it, and even then, it could possibly be attributed to natural color in the scene.
