Chromatic Aberration

Chromatic Aberration, also referred to as color fringing, is the addition of a colored line or halo (often purple, green or blue) around certain subjects in an image.

It’s a type of  distortion in which there is a failure of a lens to focus all colors to the same convergence point.

Notice the purple fringing on the left side.



And the turquoise fringing around the photographer.
