Strange Example

In the strange example on the page are we perhaps seeing chromatic aberration of longer wavelength red (approaching near IR)? Most plants reflect a lot of longwave red (as made obvious in IR photographs of plants)... this would explain why correction for the plant would cause more problems for red elsewhere in the image. I'd only expect to see this if the error of the lens was fairly steep with respect to wavelength, but that wouldn't be shocking if the lens was designed for a sensor (film?) with less NIR response. --Gmaxwell 05:33, 30 October 2006 (CET)
