I'm not entirely sure on this but there was something on this post: http://originaltrilogy.com/forum/topic.cfm/Harmys-STAR-WARS-Despecialized-Edition-HD-REMASTERED-is-now-officially-released/post/557865/#TopicPost557865

Mverta was talking about the bulbs used when this was being projected and that a bulb from the 70s had a warmer yellow hue to it.

 

After further thought, I'm of the mind my monitor settings may not be setup properly to display the movie in the anticipated result. I'm not sure exactly sure what that scene is supposed to "look like" anymore. LOL. Anyone want to post their screencaps at 30:41 and 30:43? I'm curious what everyone else is seeing.

I'm seeing what appears to be too much brightness as well here. Don't get me wrong, this whole project by Harmy was a MAJOR undertaking on his part, with a lot of help from many others also, and I don't want to come off like I am any sort of expert on how to adjust things according to color timing. Anyway, here they are:

 

Interesting. I'm seeing the exact same image color wise. This doesn't match what I saw Harmy's screen capture from back in January. Granted, it's not the same screen grab, but it's of the same scene. I don't know about the rest of you but I see more white saturation than yellow with less contrast and a very mild green in Obi-Wan's cloak. If I adjust my monitor's settings, I can get it fairly close to the intended result in Harmy's screenshot, but I'm not at all sure if Harmy intended that kind of monitor recalibration or if it should look as intended from default monitor settings. My screencapture is below Harmy's images.

 

Yes, that is exactly the colors/tones/contrast etc that I am, seeing as well. It does not look like the work print above that was shown to us a while back. It looks washed out and too bright on all my display devices...computer monitor, Plasma TV and LCD TV.

 

Here is a screen grab from my desktop computer running VLC Media Player:

sunday256, I like your adjusted picture there. It has just about the right amount of color, contrast and saturation...I believe...Nice work, if you did that!
