Sorta need to see the whole photo to decide what to do. This is a stack of one of mine from a few years back. The fringes may be best left there.

Took this one with a SMC Pentax-M 50mm f/1.7, alas, wide open (and, yes, I know that with old lenses - made for film - this can be hopeless).
I couldn't use a tripod (crowd) and fireworks were quite far away.

I boosted iso to make up for the lack of light (and got that with CR7.1), but I can't satisfactorily deal with the fringes.

I mean, CR 7.1's new tool does a pretty good job in most cases, but it just leaves an ugly grey desaturated fringe instead of a violet/purple one.

I have more than a keeper (fortunately), but removing fringes by hand would be a daunting task, mainly in those photos when I have lots of small little bursts, all haloed with a purple fringe.

I also tried CR's HSL tool (in order to lower luminance and saturation for purples and magentas).

Any advice from the pros?
Thanks in advance.
