Has anyone noticed that Rey’s lightsaber color is different throughout the new trilogy?

Here it is in the forest at the end of The Force Awakens, with a very saturated blue hue: https://imagesvc.meredithcorp.io/v3/mm/image?q=85&c=sc&poi=face&w=2000&h=1047&url=https%3A%2F%2Fstatic.onecms.io%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2Fsites%2F6%2F2019%2F11%2Fforce-awakens-1-2000.jpg

In The Last Jedi, it is almost a pure white, with what appears to be a wider blade, and a subtle hint of blue around the edges: https://imgix.bustle.com/uploads/image/2018/7/3/2975e8e5-47a9-4ec9-b2a4-01adf4eddcd7-ep8-ff-005212_d758b3b8.jpeg?w=970&h=546&fit=crop&crop=faces&auto=format%2Ccompress&cs=srgb&q=70

The Rise of Skywalker seems to be a hybrid of the two approaches: https://m.media-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BZTY1MDI5ZTMtNWMzOC00Yzk2LWI2YmItZDQxZTdkNTYyYjc4XkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyODkzNTgxMDg@.V1.jpg

Do you have a favorite? I lean that TLJ is generally the best shot of the trilogy, but I really love the blue glow of the lightsaber in TFA, especially the way it lights up Rey’s face as we hadn’t seen that effect on human characters before.
