^ That's a very nice shot!

I can see some amount of purple fringing, esp on the top of the mane.
Easy to fix, IME - just go to Saturation -> select Magenta and drag the amount down to zero

from the Macy's Day Parade this year. No cropping done. I was right in the middle of Times Square, in Duffy Square to give an idea as to how far away I was from him...he was probably about 30' up.
1/800 @ f/5.6
214mm
