    How to remove black aberation fringe in a black & white photograph

    Diesel16 Level 1

      Hello, can anyone advise me how to remove a black fringe on the horizon of a BW landscape image?

      I have searched you tube and Google and these forums but the advice given relates to chromatic aberration in colour images. 

      I started with a colour image, removed the CA in Light Room and then took the image to Photoshop for editing.

      I removed the CA again using the common method (Gaussian blur/ colour blending mode) which worked fine, but as I have used a lot of editing & layers to change the image to BW, the fringing has reappeared as a black line.

      I tried the method stated above but that did not work with the BW image.

      My work flow used Nik/Google software: Define 2, Viveza and then Silver Efex.

      I saw a few comments that the fringing is caused by over sharpening however I have NOT done any sharpening.

      Can anyone offer some advice?
