Back when that image was first revealed, I complained that it didn't look right. I've never seen a snowscape tinted reddish-orange like that, even if winter sunrises and sunsets can be spectacular.
Well, I just realized what's wrong with that picture: I don't see any shadows. If that reddish hue is caused by sunset and not some stupid camera filter, there ought to be long bluish-black shadows. This is either a filter, or a generic DOOM-ey red haze that doesn't even obscure distant objects like it ought to.
343i, please get rid of those post-processing filters or whatever is leeching the life and color out of Halo's environments. Bungie spoiled us and delivered every color of the rainbow in wonderfully vibrant hues. You're delivering tans and rust-reds and duns and earth tones as if you're embarrassed to be slumming with the rest of the spectrum.
You didn't hire set designers from the Star Trek movies, did you?
And would you look at this? Seriously, take a look. Over here. Look. At. It.
I live in a desert, beset on all sides by sagebrush and Russian olive trees, and the Columbia Basin is much more colorful than this.
You know else is that drab and lifeless? Boring, static stuff like the Mona Lisa, and even that overpriced rag is covered in five centuries of grime. Why would you intentionally try to paint the world in fifty shades of shit brown?
You know what I'm going to do tomorrow? On my way to work, I'm going to take pictures of the land I'm driving through so we can compare the color balance. The skies will be blue, clouds will be white, the sagebrush will be sage...
*Checks tomorrow's weather*
Yup. Should check out.
And, I'm off to bed.
