fairly new to photography, looking to understand something happening with my photos.
I took these photos with an old Nikon D60, using an 55-200mm f4/5.6 Nikkor lens, with no filters. ISO was set to 200 and aperture was set as open as possible – which suggests to me this might just be chromatic aberration, but i’ve never achieved an effect like this in my photos before.
When I look at these photos, it seems like certain objects glow, object edges get blurred, highlights & reflections are harsher, and overall, it seems like a couple different things are going on. But of course, maybe this can all be explained very simply and I’m just completely off-base.
If these photos were taken through a window, would a fine mesh or net on the window contribute to this effect? If this mesh/netting was very close to the lens and completely out of focus, is it possible that it reduced the sharpness of the photo?
Any help is appreciated!
