As far as I can see from the film, the majority of the time it is overcast. Overcast light is not yellow. The last time I checked, Last of the Mohicans was not set in Mexico, as the warm filter throughout the blu-ray would suggest.
I think comparison 4 is a clear example of how the true colours have been lost. I have the hdtv version and there is no strong warm filter throughout, nor is it as dark, the colours are far more similar to the grading i've added than to the original blu-ray grading.Comparison 4
Here's another example with another screencap I found on the internet, one showing sky and trees. To me, the sky should be blue with white clouds and the trees green. With the blu-ray it is not, so I've tried to grade it so it is, not to mention boosting the brightness, to reflect that it is daylight.
Blu-ray original grading:
Blu-ray regraded to remove warm filter, correct colours and brightness:
If you truely prefer the grading of the blu-ray, then you're real lucky and will be 100% satisfied. Me, I'm having difficulty accepting that yellow warm filter and reduced brightness over what is in my eyes a beautifully shot film with many different colours, not just yellow.
