I didn’t either. (I’ve corrected my post)
I’m sure part of the washing was an artistic choice. And looking back my curves were probably a bit too extreme. Then again, the current screen colours/tone and contrast do look completely different from the last official screenshots they’re using.
The sweet spot is probably somewhere in between the retouched screens and the originals.
So out of curiosity - years later, is color grading still in the game?
