Photos have dark edges. Is this normal?

    All of my photos seem to have this dark corners. It is especially noticeable with light blue skies. Have attached an excerpt from the top of one of my photos. Take a look at the dark edges in top left and top right-hand corners.

    Is this normal?

    Are you using a filter? I've seen that happen when my SRP filters are not pushed on the whole way.

    The Lens Profile correction in Adobe Lightroom or similar will fix this. It's just vignetting from the lens.

    Boo filter used. When I do use a filter the effect is worse.

    Len profile correct has already been applied in this picture. Does not seem to fix it.

    I don't think the lens profile does quite enough to fix it. I think i start adding a +3 to the vignette to lighten up those edges.

    Thought I was the only one this was happening to.
