I think people need to stop using those two scenes for reference.
We keep hearing that Jackson did go back and intentionally re-time some
scenes in the film. This is what's causing the confusion with Warner Bros and why they keep saying the changes were intentional.
The green tint alone does not explain the differences in those two scenes specifically, and when the tint is removed, they still look drastically different than the theatrical presentation.
As such, it's not much of a stretch to assume that those two scenes
were some of the ones that Jackson really did go back and re-time
. Which means they are utterly worthless
in comparison to the theatrical release in determining whether the green tint, and the green tint alone
, is still present.
I don't have any problem with Jackson tweaking the films a little here and there, especially considering the rumors that these specific changes were intended from the beginning and couldn't be completed in time for the theatrical release. It's the green tint, and only the green tint, that I and others want to see removed, not the un-doing of the actual legitimate changes that Jackson really did make.
My suggestions for the two scenes to use for comparison would be the ones where we know there was originally pure white in the scene.. the Ringwraiths at Weathertop and Frodo's awakening at Rivendell. Find that image with the white/green stripes earlier in the thread.. pick those scenes.
